Pakistan blocking India-Afghanistan connectivity, troubling our foreign policy: EAM Jaishankar

By Times Now

Union Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar on Friday accused Pakistan of hampering trade and connectivity between India and Afghanistan, which is a troubling issue as far as foreign policy is concerned.

“They have blocked connectivity between India and Afghanistan… I think until we address that problem. This challenge of how do you have a normal relationship with this very unique neighbor is a very troubling issue for our foreign policy,” Jaishankar said during an online event.

He said that state-sponsored terrorism by Pakistan makes it very difficult for countries to maintain “normal relations” with them.

“Terrorism from Pakistan continues and remains publically acknowledged by their government as a policy they are justifying. It makes it very hard to conduct normal relations with them. They don’t do normal trade with India. We don’t have a normal visa relationship,” he said.
