New York, Sep.24 (ANI): In a 90-minute candid and at times vitriolic speech directed at delegates attending the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi demanded that Kashmir be declared an independent state between India and Pakistan.
During his first appearance before the UNGA, Gaddafi ranted about the United States and other Western powers. He also did not spare the UN Security Council, reeling off the excesses of the developed nations.
Calling for the reform of the UN Security Council, he said: "It should not be called the Security Council. It should be called the 'Terror Council'."
The rambling and unscripted speech saw Gaddafi extend is speaking time for the officially scheduled 15 minutes to over an hour and a half.
The speech also dwelled on the 1963 assassination of President John F Kennedy, blaming India for Somali piracy and a theory that swine flu was created for military purposes.
According to The Guardian, Gaddafi frequently broke off to pore over pages of notes.An hour into his speech, Gaddafi complained at some length about being jet-lagged from the 10-hour flight to New York, and having to get up early for the general assembly.
Dressed in long brown robes and wearing a black hat, the Libyan leader gesticulated with his speech papers - revealing his notes to be handwritten, at a variety of angles and in various colours, on pieces of paper torn from a notebook.
He eventually left the floor at 5.33 p.m. on Wednesday, having promoted his website, Gaddafi Speaks. (ANI)
