US President Barack Obama has asked nations engaged in ‘proxy wars’ to end them.

Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama warned that if communities are not allowed to co-exist, the “embers of extremism will continue to burn” causing sufferings to countless human beings and export of extremism overseas.

In his eighth and final address as the US President, Obama admitted that the extremist and sectarian violence destabilizing the Middle East and spreading elsewhere “will not be quickly reversed.”

Home minister Rajnath Singh, finance minister Arun Jaitley, defence minister and top security brass attended the meet chaired by PM Modi. India has long accused Pakistan of waging a 'proxy war' against it.

He said that “No external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to co-exist for long”.

President Obama making a mention of “Proxy war” comes at a significant time when India has stepped up efforts to Pakistan over its soil being used for activities against India.

Although Obama didn’t refer to any country or Pakistan in specific, the message is for all those involved in proxy wars.

India for long has been saying that Pakistan is waging a “proxy war” against India by supporting terror groups and activities that hurting India.

Obama’s remarks came a day after his Secretary of State John Kerry asked Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to prevent terrorists from using his country’s territory as safe havens.
