New Delhi (NVI): External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar has dubbed the relations between India and Pakistan as “difficult” saying the latter has developed a “terrorists industry” that sends militants to carry out attacks in India.

In an interview to French Daily Le Monde, the Minister said, “The relationship is difficult since many years, mainly because Pakistan has developed an important terrorist industry and sends terrorists to India to carry out attacks. Pakistan itself does not deny this situation”.

Replying to a question on Pakistan describing its relations with India as “close to zero”, Jaishankar said that Pakistan should hand over Indians wanted in terrorist activities living there.

The Minister said, “Now, tell me: which country would be willing to talk and negotiate with a neighbour who openly practices terrorism against it?”

“We need actions that demonstrate a real willingness to cooperate,” he added.
