AKIPRESS.COM - India has responded angrily to a speech by Pakistan's prime minister to the UN general assembly, with an envoy calling the country "Terroristan", BBC reported.

In his speech PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi accused India of "war crimes" in the disputed Kashmir region and of "exporting terror" to Pakistan.

India addresses the UN on Saturday, but used a right of reply to respond.

The two nations have fought three wars since gaining independence from Britain in 1947, two of them over the disputed territory.
