"Those who speak of changing mindsets (about terrorism) need to look within and their own record of subversion against my country as our capture of an Indian spy has amply demonstrated and proved beyond any shadow of the doubt", Pakistan's Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi said during Council meeting on Afghanistan.

Indian Ambassador to the UN Syed Akbaruddin told the Security Council it is India's vision that Afghanistan regain its place and New Delhi remain committed to work closely with its regional and global partners to bring peace, security, stability and prosperity in Afghanistan.

In response to India, Lodhi said raked up the case of Jadhav, who was captured in March past year and sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged spying, an accusation that India has dismissed as concocted.

"Victory can not be won on the battlefield - a solution is and must be political", Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan told a high-level meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Friday.

The US believes that suspending security assistance to Pakistan is important to put pressure on it to act against terror safe havens, the has said as it defended President 's remarks that had given nothing but "lies and deceit".

The Government and people of Afghanistan have deeply appreciated Pakistan's efforts for taking good care of the destitute Afghan child and his safe reunion with his family.

But Lodhi continued to be in denial.

She blamed the conditions in Afghanistan and the drug trade, which she said brings terrorists $400 million every year, for the insurgency and asserted that they didn't need outside support or sanctuaries because "over 40 % of the country is under insurgent control, contested or ungoverned".

"Afghanistan and its partners, especially the USA, need to address the challenges inside Afghanistan rather than shift the onus for ending the conflict onto others", the Pakistani envoy said in a debate on building regional partnership in Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Afghanistan needed to address the challenges inside the country rather than shifting the onus for ending the conflict to others, she alleged.

"Those who imagine sanctuaries outside need a reality check", she stressed.

Pakistan, he said, has suffered greatly from the effects of terrorism, and thus the country can and should be an integral partner in its shared efforts to achieve peace and stability within the region.
