Hitting out at Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Swaraj very categorically said that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others.

In her 18 minute-long address, Swaraj also referred to Uri and Pathankot attacks and said that countries that harbour terrorists need be isolated.



She said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had extended the hand of friendship to Pakistan by inviting his counterpart Nawaz Sharif to his swearing-in ceremony in May 2014, and also visiting Lahore last December in a goodwill gesture.

"But what did we get in return? Pathankot, Uri, Bahadur Ali," she said, referring to the January 2 terror attack on an air force base in Pathankot that left seven soldiers dead, and the Uri attack of September 18 in which 18 soldiers died, and the capture of Pakistani terrorist Bahadur Ali.

Swaraj's speech was in response to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's diatribe against India over Kashmir and Uri Attacks.

Swaraj's speech assumes significance in the backdrop of Nawaz Sharif's statement that Uri Attacks could be in response to the situation in Kashmir Valley.
