External Affairs Minister SushmaSwaraj Wednesday said she conveyed to several countries post Pulwama attack that India will not escalate the situation with Pakistan but if there is any other terror attack from that country, then it will not remain silent.
In an address at a think tank on Modi government's foreignpolicy, she said Pakistan was worried that India would escalate the situationand she was contacted by a number of foreign ministers over it.
"I used to receive calls from foreign ministers who used to first condole the Pulwama attack, then express their solidarity and then they used to softly say that we think India will not escalate the situation," she said. "To which I used to reply that no, I assure you India will not escalate the situation but if there is any other terror attack then we will not remain silent as we cannot say Pulwama as our destiny," she said.
