Eenam Gambhir, Indian Secretary To UN, Who Termed Pakistan As 'Terroristan'

India' External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday ripped apart Pakistan at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and said India has risen despite being the principal destination of Pakistan's nefarious export of terrorism.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was cheered from the floor and the Indian guests in the visitors gallery as she strode wearing her trademark saffron saree on to the stage with a gilded background in the wood-panelled General Assembly building.

Responding to Abbasi's allegation that India was involved in state-sponsored terrorism and widespread human rights violations, Swaraj said, "Everyone who heard that speech said, "Look who's talking".

On Friday, Swaraj had only one bilateral meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during which she raised the issue of terrorism and H-1B. Her speech comes after India, in its Right of Reply to Abbasi's speech, termed Pakistan as "Terroristan".

The Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism (CCIT) was proposed by India in 1996 to enhance prosecution and extradition of terrorists. Pakistan must answer why it spurned this offer, she added, according to The Hindu.

She told the global community that if the enemies cannot be defined, how the countries can fight together against it. If we continue to differentiate between good terrorists and bad terrorists, how can we fight together?
