Singh, who led India's counter offensive to Pakistan at the top human rights body on September 10, also conveyed to Bachelet about India's concerns on the threats posed by cross-border terror emanating from Pakistan.

"Secretary Vijay Thakur Singh met with UNHCR High Commissioner @mbachelet in Geneva and briefed her on the steps taken towards gradual return to normalcy in J&K. Conveyed India's concerns on the threat posed by cross border terrorism emanating from Pakistan," MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

Flanked by former Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan Ajay Bisaria, who was expelled by Islamabad after India revoked special status for Kashmir, Singh on September 10 told the UNHRC that there was a need to call out those who are misusing the UN Human Rights Council for "malicious political agenda under the garb of human rights".

Singh rejected Pakistan's charges against India on the Kashmir issue at the 42nd session of the UNHRC.
