War with Pakistan is no option: Sushma Swaraj


NEW DELHI: Declaring that "war is not an option", India on Wednesday said it had decided to hold dialogue with Pakistan as it is the only way to remove "the shadow of terrorism". External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in Lok Sabha that India and Pakistan decided to hold talks on terror when the Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif met in Ufa (Russia) in July and then in Paris recently. One meeting will not bring a solution to all the problem. So we will continue the dialogue," she said during Question Hour. "We have decided that through talks we will resolve the issue of terrorism as talks is the way forward so that the shadow of terror is removed. But we want to make it clear; our prime minister has made it clear that talks and terror can't go together. Dialogue is drowned by the sound of explosion," she said. The external affairs minister said Modi had said there was a need for talks to resolve the issue of terrorism.(NDTV)
