After External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj snubbed Pakistan during her address at the 71st United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session, Pakistan reacted quickly and said that Swaraj disowned the UN Security Council resolutions at the UN itself.

In a series of tweets, Mohammed Nafees Zakaria Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan said, that the Indian EAM should explain that if Kashmir is an integral part of India, then why is it on the Agenda of Security Council?

Swaraj in her address to the UNGA had said that Pakistan thinks that it will take Kashmir from India but it should stop dreaming as Jammu and Kashmir is an will always be an integral part of India.

The spokesperson also said that Swaraj's reference to Pakistan's province of Balochistan in her speech was a violation of UN principles and international law.

On Security Council reform, Swaraj said just as the world needs a more contemporary approach to combating terrorism, there is also need for a Security Council that is less outdated and that continues to reflect the world order of an earlier era.
