Taking a jibe at Pakistan, a top Indian diplomat has said Islamabad's decision to raise the Kashmir issue at the United Nations (UN), which has not been discussed at the world body for decades, is like 'Miyan ki daud masjid tak'.
India on the other hand is focused on progressive, forward looking agenda+ during the UN General Assembly session beginning Monday, India's Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin told reporters hereon Saturday.
"I have outlined our approach, that is progressive forward looking. We are visionary in our goals. If on the other hand there are other countries, who as you say, focus on yesterday's issues then they are yesterday's people," Akbaruddin said in response to a question on reports that Pakistan plans to raise the Kashmir issue at the UN.
Pakistan's new Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly this week.
