"Scourge of terrorism affecting Afghanistan is a product of long-standing policy by a neighbouring state to keep Afghanistan unstable," Afghanistan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani said in United Nations Security Council.
Rabbani told UNSC that Pakistan has 'menaced Afghanistan for several decades now, with its roots located in terrorist sanctuaries and safe havens outside Afghanistan'.
India and United States have been lambasting Pakistan for its terror activities at ongoing UNGA session. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj termed Pakistan as 'global exporter of terrorism' in her speech.
"Pakistan has so far failed to respond positively at its own cost, particularly in relation to its global reputation and standing," Rabbani said.
Rabbani added that despite being on receiving-end of provocative actions, Afghanistan has maintained a principled position in seeking to resolve differences through dialogue, diplomacy and peaceful means. "It's particularly true in case of Pakistan," Afghan foreign minister said.
