ISLAMABAD - After lashing out at Islamabad, Indian External Affairs Minister Jaishankar desires to meet Pakistani FM Shah Qureshi at UN General Assembly.
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Tuesday asserted India 's aim to build a better and stronger neighbourhood but added that it would remain a challenge as there is the issue of cross border terrorism from one neighbour.
Addressing the media on the completion of 100 days of his government, EAM S Jaishankar in a veiled jibe at Pakistan added that India has a unique challenge from one neighbour. He further added that India can't take any step until the issue of cross border terrorism is successfully addressed and "that neighbour becomes a normal neighbour".
"We hope to build a better, stronger neighbourhood but recognising that we have a unique challenge from one neighbour until the issue of cross border terrorism is successfully addressed & that neighbour becomes a normal neighbour that would remain a challenge," said the EAM
