India Wants to End ‘Cross-Border Terrorism’ with Pakistan: Jaishankar

New Delhi: India wants to end cross-border terrorism with Pakistan, a long-standing issue that needs resolution from both sides, stated Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar after assuming office for the second term.

Speaking to journalists, Jaishankar emphasized that the complex issue of cross-border terrorism is at its peak between India and Pakistan, necessitating a search for a solution. Highlighting the “first neighbor” policy, he expressed India’s desire to resolve the years-old issue of cross-border terrorism with Pakistan.

Discussing strained relations with China, Jaishankar mentioned that India would focus on finding solutions to border issues, which have resulted in long-standing tense relations between the neighboring countries. He acknowledged that there are still some border issues with China, and India’s attention would remain on resolving them.

It’s noteworthy that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was sworn in for a third term at a ceremony at the presidential palace, Rashtrapati Bhavan, in New Delhi on Sunday, attended by leaders from seven regional countries.

Following Modi’s swearing-in, leaders from both countries engaged in diplomacy through the social media platform X. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif congratulated Modi on his third term, marking Pakistan’s first response to the election results.

The exchange began with a brief congratulatory message from Prime Minister Shehbaz on X, congratulating Modi on his swearing-in as India’s Prime Minister. This message echoed the day when Modi had sent his congratulations to Shehbaz Sharif on becoming Prime Minister in March. Modi responded by thanking Shehbaz for his kind wishes.

The leaders’ exchange continued with a more detailed message from Nawaz Sharif, who wrote, “Let us replace hate with hope and seize the opportunity to shape the destiny of the two billion people of South Asia,”.

The Indian Prime Minister was quick to respond and in his response, Modi appreciated Nawaz Sharif’s message but reiterated his stance on security:

“Appreciate your message @NawazSharifMNS. The people of India have always stood for peace, security, and progressive ideas. Advancing the well-being and security of our people shall always remain our priority.”
