Jun 08, 2023

New Delhi, June 8 (ANI): EAM S Jaishankar on June 08 gave a direct message to Pakistan. He said that India can’t keep terrorism aside because of its Neighbourhood first policy. He said, “The report card that I have present, it shows that we have progressed more in neighbourhood, and we have challenges also in our neighbourhood. Political relations, regional connectivity with countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Myanmar are strong. The challenges are with Pakistan, and this is not something new. Cross-border terrorism was a challenge and the difference now is that we are not ready to accept it. Keeping terrorism aside because of Neighbourhood First Policy, this is not the sentiment of India and Modi government. Pakistan and the world know what they need to do if they want to have good relations with India.”
