India on Tuesday lambasted Islamabad for presenting a “dossier of lies” against New Delhi at the United Nations, saying “concocting documents and peddling false narratives” is not new to Pakistan, which hosts the worlds largest number of UN proscribed terrorists.
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 affiliated to Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), a terrorist organisation proscribed by the UN, in Jammu and Kashmir.
Responding to Pakistan’s move at the UN, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador, 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. The top Indian envoy further added that “Pakistan is a host to the world’s largest number of UN proscribed terrorists and entities. Remember Abbottabad!”
Osama Bin Laden, the founder of the militant terrorist organisation al-Qaeda, was killed by US security forces in Abbottabad on May 2, 2011. He was shot in the head, during the firefight in the compound in Pakistan, where he was taking shelter.
Pakistan had long denied his presence in the country.
The presentation of the dossiers comes ahead of India joining the 15-member council for a two-year term starting January 1, 2021.
