Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari has said that the ‘ongoing crisis’ in Kashmir shows the failure of the United Nations.
In his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Zardari said that these problems can only be solved in an environment of mutual cooperation.
On the issue of Islamic extremism, Zardari told the international community that it would not be right to pressure his country to take further steps.
He said that Pakistan had to pay more in this war than any other country in the world.
In his speech, Zardari also expressed his opposition to the anti-Islamic film made in the United States.
emphasis on cooperation
Zardari said: “Kashmir will remain a symbol of failure rather than a stronghold of the UN system. We understand that such problems can only be solved when there is an atmosphere of mutual cooperation. By normalizing trade relations, we want to create a regional history of South Asia.”
,To all those who say that we have not taken enough steps (against extremism), I humbly ask that you please do not insult our people who have lost their lives and live in pain.,

Zardari defended his country on the issue of taking action against Islamic extremism.
He said: “No country or people have suffered as much in the fight against terrorism as we have. To all those who say that we have not taken enough steps, I humbly ask that you please do not insult our people who have lost their lives and live in pain.”
Zardari said his government was finding it difficult to garner public support for the “war on terror” because of US drone strikes.
no ban movie
Zardari began his speech by condemning the US-made anti-Islamic film, which is sparking fierce protests in all Muslim countries around the world, including Pakistan.
Condemning such content, he demanded its worldwide ban.
Earlier, US President Barack Obama, addressing the United Nations General Assembly, condemned extremism and intolerance in the world.
He also condemned the anti-Islamic film but at the same time said that violent demonstrations about it cannot be justified.
He said he would not ban anti-Islamic films in the United States because it would be contrary to American values.
