India open to talk terror with Pak provided it is in ‘civilized’ manner: Jaishankar

SINGAPORE: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday said that India is open to talk about the issue of terrorism with Pakistan provided that it is done in a “civilised” manner “without having the gun pointed at my head.”

Jaishankar, who is in Singapore on a September 6-10 visit, made the comments while speaking at the Mint Asia Leadership Summit here attended by around 400 delegates.

His comments came amidst heightened tensions between India and Pakistan after New Delhi revoked the special status to Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.

He said that if there are issues that need to be talked about, it is between India and Pakistan.

“But it must be done without having the gun pointed at my head,” he said, referring to the cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistan. (AGENCIES)
