PM Modi also urged the international community to speak and act in unity and urgency to fight terrorism. “Those who sponsor and support terrorism must be isolated and sanctioned, not rewarded,” he said.
Pak-India relations have been strained after recent violence in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) post brutal killing of Kashmiris’ leader Burhan Wani. Pakistan is highlighting the grave human rights violations in international community to support cause of innocent Kashmiris. In this vein Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has appointed members of cabinet to highlight atrocities on part of Indian forces.
However at G20 summit in China, Narendra Modi has pointed fingers at Pakistan instead for allegedly “spreading agents of terror” in the region.
