India ready to promote friendship with Pakistan, says S.M. Krishna

New Delhi, Sat, 23 May 2009 ANI

New Delhi, May 23 (ANI): The new Indian Minister for External Affairs, S. M. Krishna, said here on Saturday that India was ready to extend its hand of friendship and partnership towards Pakistan, if it displayed a determined and credible action to eradicate the structure of terrorism prevailing in its territory.


Speaking to the media, after taking charge of Ministry of External Affairs, S.M.Krishna said that he was conscious of the opportunities ahead of the country and the difficulties faced by it as it continues to pursue its independent policy of peace and development and strengthen its strategic interests.


"We cannot change our neighbours therefore we will have to live with them. We stand ready to extend our hand of friendship and partnership to Pakistan if they take determined and credible action to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism operating from their territory. That has been the stumbling block and it is for Pakistan to take the necessary step," said S.M.Krishna, the new External Affairs Minister.


Krishna said the world situation is rapidly changing and India, as a responsible power, must engage actively with the world.


India, he said, will consolidate existing strategic partnership with major powers like United States of America, Russia, China, Japan and European Union. The traditional ties with countries in Africa, West Asia and Latin America will be further strengthened as also the 'Look East' policy By Naveen Kapoor (ANI)
