If Pakistan wants good relations with India then it should be handed over wanted terrorists to India: S Jaishankar


Foreign Minister S Jaishankar has said that relations with Pakistan remain 'difficult', as he openly promotes terrorism against India. He also said that if Islamabad is serious about cooperating with New Delhi, then it should be handed over to the wanted Indians who are living in Pakistan for terrorist activities. He said in an interview with French daily 'Le Monde' that Pakistan does not refuse to send terrorists to India.

On the relations between the two countries, he said, 'This relationship has been difficult for many years because Pakistan has developed an important terrorist industry and sends terrorists to India to carry out attacks. Pakistan itself does not deny this situation. He was questioned about the Pakistani Foreign Minister's recent statement in which he said that relations with India were 'almost non-existent'.

S Jaishankar said, 'Now, tell me, which country will be ready to negotiate with a neighbor who openly promotes terrorism against him. We need actions that demonstrate genuine willingness to cooperate. ' He said, 'For example, Indian criminals wanted for terrorist activities are living in Pakistan. We are asking Pakistan to hand them over. He was clearly referring to criminals like Mafia kingpin Dawood Ibrahim, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan.

Regarding the situation in Kashmir, Jaishankar said that due to 'reforms' in August, some precautionary measures were taken so as to avoid the threat of violent action by radical and separatist elements. The situation is becoming normal now. In August, India repealed Article 370 giving special status to the state. The Foreign Minister said that these restrictions have been gradually reduced and telephone and mobile lines have been restored as the situation is normal. Shops are open and apple is being cultivated. Things are back to normal. He said that as soon as things become safe in the area, foreign journalists will be welcomed.
