*Singapore - We want talks with Pakistan but Islamabad is pointing guns at us, claims Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar at an international forum. *

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said today that said India is open to talks with Pakistan about terrorism, provided that it is done in a "civilised" manner without "having the gun pointed at my head."

In Singapore, S Jaishankar spoke at the Mint Asia Leadership Summit, attended by around 400 delegates.

His comments came amid 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.

"we are open to talking about it provided that you talk like two civilised neighbours," he added.
