External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj today said terrorism was the biggest threat to human rights and asked the global community to isolate nations that don’t cooperate in fighting terrorism.

Taking a dig at Pakistan, Swaraj told the UNGA that “some nations have developed nurturing terrorists as their hobby; they are providing them arms and support as well. She asked all the countries to forego their past alliances, conflicts and obligations and take on take on terrorism head on.

“This (fighting terrorism) is not a big task, provided we have the will power,” Swaraj said.

Replying to Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s address in the same house last week, Swaraj said India was not putting any pre conditions for talks with Islamabad as he had alleged. “We had in fact started comprehensive dialogue with Pakistan and tried to take our friendship to another level through giving a personal touch to our relations with Pakistan.”

She said that in return Pakistan had “given us Uri, Pathankot and Bahadur Ali (a Pakistani terrorist captured alive in Jammu).” Her allusion was to the terror strikes carried out by Pakistan sponsored terrorists.

On Kashmir, she said, “Kashmir is an integral part of India and Pakistan must abandon dreaming about it.”

Swaraj declared that India would ratify the Paris climate change treaty on October 2, in honour of Mahatama Gandhi, who, she said, “had conserved the nature all his life.”

She also asked the UNGA to consider the Comprehensive convention on international terrorism (CCIT) mooted by New Delhi and also expand the security council.
