Tharoor: we want a stable neighbour

Staff Reporter

PALAKKAD: Union Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor said here on Thursday that India had no intention to destabilise Pakistan and it only wanted a strong and stable neighbour.

Talking to reporters, he said New Delhi wanted Islamabad to take strong action to curb terror emanating from its soil. If this was done bilateral ties could be normalised.

Mr. Tharoor said there was no basis for the allegation that India was supporting Taliban against Pakistan. “It is an absurd charge.”

On the border issue with China, he said talks were on to resolve it peacefully. There was growing cooperation between the two Asian powers in economy, trade, commerce, culture etc.

There was no evidence to suggest that there was a conspiracy by some vested interests to spoil the good relationship between the two neighbours.
