Swaraj's meeting with Tillerson was held on the sidelines of United Nations General Assembly and was crucial as it comes after U.S. President Donald Trump's urged India to do more in Afghanistan last month.
There was some laughter when she derisively said that the world reacted with, "Look who is talking!" when Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abassi accused India of state-sponsored terrorism. This shows that India is successfully influencing the minds of the global community in its propaganda campaign against Pakistan but we have miserably failed to put across our point of view in right perspective before the world community. We have marched ahead, consistently, without pause, in Education, Health and across the range of human welfare.
Swaraj also called for disruption of terrorist networks and terror financing, he said. She said: "There have been multiple governments in India since Independence, but all worked towards the development of the country unlike Pakistan".
Swaraj said while Pakistan continues to plumb new depths of barbarism, it has the gumption to preach humanity to India. We all in bilateral and multilateral discussions condemn this evil, and piously resolve to fight it in all our declaratory statements. But the real rebuke came-as it had to-from India's foreign minister, Sushma Swaraj, during her speech at the UNGA on Saturday (Sept. 23).
On Thursday, Pakistan's prime minister accused India of war crimes in the disputed Kashmir region, calling for an United Nations investigation.
"They (terror outfits) continue to find support and shelter in countries which use terrorism as an instrument of State Policy", she said.
He said the "struggle of the people in the region is being brutally suppressed by India".
"While India made scholars, scientists, doctors, Pakistan created jihadis" she added. What have you produced?
The G4 foreign ministers stressed that the Council needs to reflect today's world in order to tackle complex challenges.
Reminding the United Nations that even after two decades it was yet to adopt the Comprehensive Convention for International Terrorism, Swaraj said, "We all condemn this evil, and piously resolve to fight it in all our declaratory statements".
