Speaking about the UNHRC, he said, "This Council is responsible for the promotion & protection of all human rights universally. However, ironically, what we heard from Pakistani delegation was an attempt to polarise & politicize this august forum." 

'J&K is and will be an integral part of India'

Speaking about Jammu and Kashmir, he added, "​J&K has been, is and will continue to be an integral part of India, and Pakistan should cease to covet it. As far as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is concerned, it has no locus standi to comment on the internal affairs of India."
