General Debate

The Responsibility to Protect and the

Prevention of Genocide, War Crimes, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity

United Nations General Assembly

Thank you, Madam President,


During the previous session of this important debate a week ago, we had placed on record our rejection of yet another attempt by the delegation of Pakistan to misuse this forum.


We are constrained to take the floor again today.


Repeated and cynical attempts by Pakistan, a hub of terrorism in our region and beyond, to spread a false narrative about the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir have not succeeded earlier and will not do so now.


We do not wish to engage on this further.


Thank you, Madam President.
