India expected to focus on Pakistan, terrorism

India has also received support from several other multilateral groupings during the current UN General Assembly session in this regard, including BRICS and IBSA. According to some estimates, the USA issues 85,000 H1-B visas every year out of which Indians reportedly get about 60,000 visas.

Swaraj also spoke of large-scale movement of refugees (from West Asia) causing global anxiety, the return of nuclear proliferation (North Korea), maritime security, cyber security, unemployment, gender discrimination, poverty, hunger and the progress of India's own poverty alleviation programme.

"We established scientific and technical institutions which are the pride of the world".

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj yesterday raised the issue of terrorism and H-1B visas with U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson as the two leaders met for the first time in a bilateral setting.

"While India made scholars, scientists, doctors, Pakistan created jihadis" she added. What have you produced? She said: "There have been multiple governments in India since Independence, but all worked towards the development of the country unlike Pakistan".

"When we talk of world peace, we mean peace not only among human beings but also peace with nature", she told the gathering in her second consecutive address at the UNGA. In its reply, India's first secretary to the United Nations, Eenam Gambhir, said Pakistan had no right to raise the Kashmir issue on worldwide forums.

"Doesn't it reflect your nefarious designs", she asked the Pakistani leader.

While speaking at the ad hoc Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Meeting of Foreign Ministers in New York, Swaraj has said that there can't be a justification for any acts of terrorism. Referring pointedly to Abbasi's speech, Swaraj added: "A country that has been the world's greatest exporter of havoc, death, and inhumanity became a champion of hypocrisy by preaching about humanity from this podium".

This was in contrary to the speech of Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khakan Abbasi.

She had also met the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Shiekh Hasina, though the issue of the Rohingyas was not brought up. "But I do want to remind you that at the 2005 World Summit there was a consensus that the early reform of the Security Council is an essential element of our overall effort to reform the United Nations", Swaraj said.

Since 2001, India has pledged aid worth $3.1 billion to Afghanistan. The reality is that Pakistan's politicians remember everything, but manipulate their memory according to their convenience. Pakistan's Prime Minister must answer why his nation rejected the peace offer? The reference to counter-terrorism has been a common thread in most of the statements from multilateral meetings that Swaraj has attended in NY in the last three days, External Affairs Minister spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters.
