UNSC meet on Israel-Hamas war: India on Wednesday slammed Pakistan during a session of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting on the prevailing Israel-Gaza situation after Islamabad's representative absurdly brought up the Kashmir issue during his speech.

India's Deputy Permanent Representative at the UN, Ambassador R Ravindra said he would treat a reference by Pakistan to Kashmir during a Security Council meeting with the contempt it deserves and would not dignify it with a response.

The development came after Pakistan's UN envoy Munir Akram made reference to Kashmir at the UN meeting on the situation in the Middle East.

"Before I end, there was a remark of habitual nature by one delegation referring to Union Territories that are integral and inalienable parts of my country," said the Indian representative. 

Blinken's veiled attack on Pakistan

"All acts of terrorism are unlawful and unjustifiable, whether they are carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based terror outfit, or by Hamas, targeting people in Mumbai or Kibbutz Beeri," US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the Security Council.

Blinken said they must affirm the right of any nation to defend itself and to prevent such horror from repeating itself. 

"No member of this Council, no nation in this entire body could or would tolerate the slaughter of its people," he added.

"As this Council and the UN General Assembly have repeatedly affirmed, all acts of terrorism are unlawful and unjustifiable. They're unlawful and unjustifiable, whether they target people in Nairobi or Bali, Istanbul or Mumbai, in New York or Kibbutz Be'eri," Blinken told the UN Security Council.

"They are unlawful and unjustifiable whether they're carried out by ISIS, by Boko Haram, by Al Shabaab, by Lashkar-e-Taiba or by Hamas. They are unlawful and unjustifiable whether victims are targeted for their faith, their ethnicity, their nationality or any other reason," Blinken said.

He stressed that the Security Council has a responsibility to denounce member states that arm, fund and train Hamas or "any other terrorist group that carries out such horrific acts."

Blinken's remarks appeared to make a reference to the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks carried out by Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba.
