Pak’s large-scale terrorism industry prevents it from behaving like ‘normal neighbour’: Jaishankar

LONDON: Pakistan’s state-sponsored “large-scale industry of terrorism” prevents its Government from behaving like a “normal neighbour”, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Wednesday.

In a live video link from New Delhi to address the Leaders’ Summit as part of UK-India Week in Buckinghamshire near London, he called on countries like Britain to be more proactive in calling out nations that obstruct the international rules-based order because “a lot of what Pakistan is doing today, affects the rest of the world, including the UK”.

“This kind of large-scale industry of terrorism, which is done with the blessing of the state because the state thinks it is an instrument against the neighbour… it is increasingly unacceptable to India, and more and more countries are coming around to that view,” he said, in response to a question about the political situation vis-à-vis Pakistan.
