He stressed that India will no longer sidestep this issue, emphasising that the prevailing sentiment in the country is to address the challenge of terrorism head-on and not overlook the problem.

Speaking at the Institute of South Asian Studies of the National University of Singapore during his three-nation visit, S Jaishankar discussed his book 'Why Bharat Matters'.

“Every country wants a stable neighbourhood...we have been unfortunate, or ill-starred to be blessed with the one we have to our west. How do you deal with a neighbour, who does not hide the fact that they use terrorism as an instrument of statecraft?” he said.

Making an indirect reference to Pakistan, the minister mentioned that terrorism in that country fosters terrorism on almost an "industry level" and resembles an "assembly line" process.

“It's not a one-off, different countries at different points of time have experienced this. But, very sustained, almost an industry level, assembly line...people whose job is to do bad things at night.”

He further mentioned that India has made the decision to confront the problem directly because avoiding it would only lead to further complications. “I don't have a quick, instantaneous fix, but what I can tell you is that India will not skirt this problem anymore...if we have a problem, we must be honest enough to face up to the problem. If you have to have those discussions, we should, if it's hard to find a solution, we must work through. We should not give the other country a free pass...in India the mood is not to overlook terrorism.”

The EAM further added, “If you look at the changes that have happened in the last decade, the great deal of public anger and lack of response to terrorism threat is one factor.”

Jaishankar is currently on an official visit to Singapore, the Philippines and Malaysia from March 23 to March 27.

The purpose of the visit is to strengthen bilateral ties with these nations and to engage in discussions on regional issues of mutual interest, as stated in a release by the Ministry of External Affairs. (With inputs from ANI)

Pakistan has denounced “provocative remarks” made by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, who said in an interview that India would enter Pakistan to kill anyone who escapes over its border after trying to carry out attacks.

Singh’s comments on Friday came after the Guardian newspaper published a report stating that India had killed about 20 people in Pakistan since 2020 as part of a broader plan to target “terrorists residing on foreign soil”.
