UNITED NATIONS: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said the dossier on Indian interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs and on fomenting terrorism on Pakistan’s soil by India would soon be handed over to the secretary general of the United Nations.

He told reporters at a press conference at Waldorf Astoria hotel after his UNGA speech that if he had a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi he would have handed the dossier over to him.

He said that Pakistan was keen to have peaceful neighbourly relations but India had not reciprocated with the same sentiments. “It is the time that India should act by coming forward and desist from violating the ceasefire on LoC and Working Boundary,” he said.

But he said nothing about the construction of a wall at the border as charged in a letter to the UN Secretary General, by Pakistan’s ambassador.

In reply to a question, Nawaz Sharif said an important announcement would be made in Pakistan about welcoming Malala Yousufzai to Pakistan. —M.H. & A.I.
