NEW YORK: British Prime Minister Theresa May while addressing the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) here paid tribute to former prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto on the tenth year of her death anniversary.

“This year is the tenth anniversary of the death of the woman who introduced me to my husband and who is known well to many of us in this United Nations,” May said in her keynote address, recalling her days with BB at Oxford University.

“Benazir Bhutto was brutally murdered by people who actively rejected the values that all of us here at the United Nations stand for,” she said.

The British PM further said: “In a country that has suffered more than most at the hands of terrorists, murdered for standing up for democracy, murdered for espousing tolerance and murdered for being a woman. When I think of a hundred and thousands of victims of terrorism in countries across the world I think of their friends, their families, their communities devastated by this evil and I say, enough is enough.”
