NEW DELHI: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Monday asserted that India believes in peaceful co-existence with all countries, including its neighbours, but does not want any interference in its internal affairs, remarks seen as an oblique reference to Pakistan.
New Delhi has maintained that its decision to scrap special status to Jammu and Kashmir is an internal matter and has slammed Islamabad’s efforts to internationalise the issue. Several countries have sided with India’s stand.
“India always believed in peaceful co-existence with all countries, including its neighbours. We don’t want anybody to interfere in the internal affairs of our country, nor do we interfere in the affairs of other countries”, Naidu told a French delegation here according to a statement issued by his secretariat.
