Foreign Desk Report

NEW YORK: Pakistan has said the Indian government was pushing terrorists in cross-border militant attacks as part of its state policy of targetting the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and the Pakistan Army protecting and spearheading work on the game-changer project.
Speaking during the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly debate, Jehanzeb Khan, first secretary at Pakistan’s mission to the UN, said New Delhi was pushing terrorists from proscribed militant outfits including Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its offspring Jamaatul Ahrar (JuA) to attack the military and civilians.
Khan’s statement came in response to Indian assertion that the UN Security Council should not be misused by countries with “retaliatory intent to name innocent civilians as terrorists” The Indian statement, Times of India reported, was an apparent reference to the blocking of Islamabad’s bid to have two Indians terrorists listed under the UNSC 1267 sanctions committee.
