India's permanent representative at the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin addressed the media on Friday after the UNSC (United Nations Security Council) meeting in New York. Syed Akbaruddin significantly answered three questions from three Pakistan reporters each and one each from international media reporter and Indian media reporter. "So that you don't have any doubts that I have answered three Pakistan questions," he said adding to his remarks.

However, responding to the questions of the Pakistani reporters, he gave a stern warning to the neighbouring country in order to initiate dialogue, calling for action against terror activities.

"Using terror to try and push your goals is not the way a normal state behave in - Stop terror to start talks," he said in a stringent warning to Pak.

During the briefing, he was questioned by another Pakistan journalist asking "when will India begin a dialogue with Pakistan?". Responding to the question, in a spontaneous gesture, Syed Akbaruddin immediately went to the Pak reporter and shook his hand and another Pak reporter's hand.

Syed Akbarudding, at his best, showed his witty side during the press briefing and single-handedly shut down Pakistan at the UN, speaking for a billion. 

At the beginning of the Q&A session, while journalists were clamouring to ask questions, he assured saying:

"Relax, I will answer five questions - which is five times more than my last two predecessors, who came here."

Further, when asked about the way forward as most global powers have stated that Jammu-Kashmir is a bilateral issue he said:

"It is now for Pakistan to stop terror and start talks."

When asked about the restrictions on the ground put in place in Jammu-Kashmir prior to the abrogation of article 370, he said:

"Prevention is better than cure. Our measures were to stop terrorists from bleeding our people. There are no fatalities in the last 10 days."

Responding to the questions of the media for the first time, he asked the journalists to cut him some slack while asking their queries.
