New chapter opened in Indo-Pak ties: Krishna
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Dhaka, July 7: Ahead of Pakistan Foreign Minister’s visit to New Delhi, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna Thursday said a “new chapter” has opened in Indo-Pak ties and both sides are working to narrow the trust deficit between them.
“A new chapter has opened in our relations with Pakistan where I had gone recently and the latest was the Foreign Secretary-level meeting in Islamabad. Let us admit that there is a trust deficit between the two countries and the gap was becoming bigger and bigger between India and Pakistan.
However, both are working to narrow the gap,” Krishna, who is on a three day visit to Dhaka, said addressing top Bangladeshi editors.
“All this is culminating in the Pakistan Foreign Minister’s visit to Delhi on July 26-27,” he said, adding “these are all positive signs having beneficial impact on the bilateral relationship.”
“India is as comfortable dealing with a military regime as with a civilian government,” Krishna said, while responding to a question if India was more comfortable in dealing with a “dictatorial regime” in Pakistan.
He made it clear that it was for the people of Pakistan to decide what type of government it would have and India would not like to interfere in the internal affairs of any country.
“What type of government a particular country would have it is for that county to decide. India would not like to interfere in the internal affairs of any country,” Krishna said.
