External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar today took a veiled dig at Pakistan and said that it is very difficult to engage with a neighbour who practices cross-border terrorism against India. The External Affairs Minister made the remarks while addressing a joint press briefing with his Panama counterpart in Panama City. He said, the bottom line on this issue is, it is very difficult for us to engage with a neighbour who practices cross-border terrorism against us.
The External Affairs Minister said, India has always said that they have to deliver on the commitment not to encourage, sponsor and carry out cross-border terrorism. He said, we continue to hope that one day we would reach that stage.
