Remember Abbottabad? India reminds Pak of its terror factory

India’s Permanent Representative to United Nation Ambassador, TN Tirumurti on Tuesday, has reminded Pakistan about Abbottabad, where Al Qaeda terrorist Osama bin Laden hid for years and was killed.

It was in a hard-hitting response to Islamabad’s UN envoy for presenting a “dossier of lies” at the United Nations, saying “concocting documents and peddling false narratives” is not new to Pakistan, which hosts the world’s largest number of UN proscribed terrorists and entities.

Pakistan has given to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres a dossier accusing India of ‘stoking’ terrorism in Pakistan, just a day after New Delhi provided a dossier to some UN Security Council members over a last week terror attempt by four terrorists belonged to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), a terrorist organization proscribed by the UN, in Jammu and Kashmir.

Responding to Pakistan’s move at the UN, TS Tirumurti, took to Twitter and said, “The ‘dossier of lies’ presented by Pakistan enjoys zero credibility. Concocting documents and peddling false narratives is not new to Pakistan. Pakistan is a host to the world’s largest number of UN proscribed terrorists and entities. Remember Abbottabad!”

Meanwhile, Indian foreign secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla briefed a select group of head of missions in New Delhi about Pakistan’s direct role in planning the terror attack which was foiled by Indian security forces.

The envoys were informed about India’s concerns regarding Pakistan’s sustained efforts to “destabilize” the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and to “subvert” upcoming local elections and democracy in the union territory, sources told news agency Press Trust of India.

India is all set to join the powerful UN Security Council as a non-permanent member for a two-year term beginning January 1, 2021.
