New Delhi: India and Pakistan were involved in a bitter exchange over Jammu & Kashmir at the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit. In the bitter exchange, Islamabad accused New Delhi’s actions illegal, immoral and unethical while India described Pakistan as the epicenter of terrorism.
The two-day NAM summit was held at Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan on October 25 and 26, 2019. Even though India refrained from directly referring to Pakistan at the international forum, yet Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu named the neighbour country calling it the epicenter of terrorism while talking about cross-border terrorism.
Naidu regretted that Pakistan had used the NAM forum to justify once again its long-standing policy of conducting cross-border terrorism against its neighbours. On the other hand, Pakistan President Arif Alvi said at the summit that the steps that India took recently to revoke the special status of J&K were “draconian measures (which) found no parallel in this age and time.”
