External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will address the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Saturday. If reports are to be believed, she is likely to speak on terrorism, climate change and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Stay with India.com on Live Updates on Sushma Swaraj’s UNGA address.
Earlier on Thursday, Swaraj attended the Informal Meeting of the SAARC Council of Ministers held on the sidelines of the 73rd UN General Assembly and chaired by Foreign Minister of Nepal Pradeep Kumar Gyawali. The minister, however, in a huge snub to Pakistan left a meeting of the SAARC foreign ministers early, which was also attended by her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi amidst fresh chill in bilateral ties.
Swaraj and Qureshi were slated to meet on the sidelines of the General Assembly session. However, India called off the meeting last week, citing the brutal killings of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir and Islamabad releasing postage stamps ‘glorifying’ slain Kashmiri militant Burhan Wani.
