India to Address the United Nations General Assembly Today

FM Qureshi also warned the United Nations chief to remain wary of Indian propaganda, "Pakistan is willing to hold talks with India for peace and is ready to talk with India on all matters, however, India should also play its role".

Though the global community has become increasingly aware of Pakistan's role in promoting terrorism, the absence of an worldwide agreement on the definition of terrorism allows Pakistan to characterise terrorists as "freedom fighters", Ms. Swaraj said. "I wish, I wish we could have smiled at each other", he said.

India wants talks as it believes they are the only way to resolve the most complex disputes.

"Pakistan has already submitted evidence with United Nations in this regard", stated Qureshi.

On the one hand, we want to fight terrorism; on the other, we can not define it. "We need to bring them to accountability through worldwide law".

Qureshi stressed the need for strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries, and not just connect with each other over Afghanistan.

"Today India is their strategic partners".

Saeed is the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based group that carried out the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed. Holding Pakistan responsible for harbouring terrorists, she said it is a country that "glorifies" terrorists and "refuses to see blood of innocents". "We've lost over 70,000 lives for this cause", he added. Qureshi warned India against testing patience of Pakistan. "They preferred politics over peace", said Qureshi.

How Day One of the Ryder Cup panned out
Ian Poulter and Jon Rahm were the only Europeans to be down, with Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth one-up through 11. British Open champion Molinari, as he did in the win over Woods and Reed, made the winning putt.

The US diplomat, however, focused more on the need for improvement in Pakistan's relations with Afghanistan, where the United States has been fighting a resilient insurgency for the past 17 years. "Whenever you're ready, Pakistan will not shy away".

On Thursday, after delivering her speech, the External Affairs Minister left the venue without waiting for the Pakistan Foreign Minister to begin his speech.

The two South Asian nations, always uneasy neighbors, face off under particularly tense conditions in that region at a "line of control" that cuts through a rugged mountain range.

"However, we'll be careful before committing [to the United States administration] because disappointments come when promises are not met", he stated.

FM Qureshi expressed Pakistan's desire to engage with India for lasting peace in the region.

Asked by a Pakistani journalist about why the talks didn't take place, Qureshi replied alluding to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party, but without naming them.

He said the newly-elected government of Pakistan Thereek-e-Insaf (PTI) was voted to power for bringing change and for revising policies and looking at things differently.

"I was quite concerned when I saw the Minister for External Affairs, when I was in the room she looked pale to me", Qureshi said while laughing. "They were helping their own country (and were trying to) overcome a situation which was not of their own making", he said.
