Indian External Affairs Minister responds over media reports of restoring Pakistan India cricketing ties
NEW YORK - Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar responds over media reports of restoring Pakistan India cricketing ties.
India's external affairs minister S Jaishankar has dismissed any cricketing ties with Pakistan saying New Delhi cant take a "tea break" and say "let us go and play cricket" and Islamabad supports terror.
Speaking in New York at an event, Jaishankar said, "dominate narrative of the relationship" between New Delhi and Islamabad "is terrorism, suicide bombings, violence and then you say okay guys tea break, let us go and play cricket."
He highlighted the recent terror attacks in India from Uri, Pathankot and Pulwama and said, "its a very hard narrative to sell to people. It's a democracy, sentiments do matter and one message I don't want to give, you do terrorism by night, and its business as usual during the day."
He said, it is very difficult in real life to separate issues, DNA has reported.
