India lambasted Pakistan's assertion that New Delhi had called off the proposed foreign minister-level talks on flimsy grounds.

India's Ambassador to the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin, posted the statement in a tweet, along with a video clip of Ms Gambhir speaking at the UN. Who hosts 132 @UN designated terrorists & patronises 22 entities sanctioned under @UN Security Council 1267 & 1988 resolution regimes?

Gambhir said both Houses of India's Parliament had expressed solidarity while paying respects to those killed.

"It has become something of a habit with Pakistan to throw the dust of deceit and deception against India in order to provide some thin cover for its own guilt", Swaraj said, recalling last year's embarrassing episode for Pakistan when its Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi displayed a picture at the General Assembly of an injured Palestinian girl claiming she was a Kashmiri.

New Delhi accused Islamabad of attempting to "look away from the monster of terror that Pakistan has created to destabilise its neighbours".

Qureshi had said that Pakistan will never forget the mass murder of more than 150 children in the Peshawar school, the Mastung attack and many others that "have links with terrorists supported by India".

"Will Pakistan deny that UN-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed enjoys a free run inside Pakistan and spews venom and sets up candidates for electoral office?" "Before preaching to the world, championing of human rights should begin at home", Gambhir added.

India and Pakistan exchanged barbs at the United Nations on Saturday after plans for a rare meeting between the foreign ministers in NY fell through.

On 21 September, India called off peace talks with Pakistan, a day after it had accepted the proposal in protest against the killing of three of its security personnel and the glorification of terrorist Burhan Wani by Pakistan. "India believes that we must move forward together or we sink into the swamp of stagnation".

"To conclude, what we have heard are fake allegations and fake facts, which can only make for a fake vision".

Referring to terrorism as a demon and highlighting the threat posed by it, Sushma pointed the accusatory finger at Pakistan and said the country pretends innocence even though it was found guilty of shielding bin Laden.

Describing terrorism as an "existential threat" to humanity, Swaraj said that even as the perpetrators of the 9/11 terror attacks in NY met their fate, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack Hafiz Saeed still roams the streets of Pakistan with impunity.

"What America perhaps could not comprehend was that Osama would get sanctuary in a country that claimed to be America's friend and ally: Pakistan", she said, adding, "Pakistan's commitment to terrorism as an instrument of official policy has not abated one bit".

Swaraj said, "On the one hand, we want to fight terrorism; on the other, we can not define it".
