How UPA 2’s foreign policy has been incoherent.
India fully shares the continuing global concern on possible breaches of nuclear security, said Khurshid, who is heading the Indian delegation to the two-day summit.
Salman Khurshid said he was saddened by the unfair manner in which his comments were reported to feed “an already frenzied and surcharged atmosphere” in the country.
Khurshid spoke to the media on board the PM’s special aircraft after Manmohan Singh, returning home from the BIMSTEC summit.
Upadhya told the petroleum ministry last month that the firm was “not in a position” to consider Maldives request for products supply.
Meanwhile, in Male, Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh pushed for an enhanced trade cooperation among the SAARC members.
Khurshid’s visit must focus attention on centrality of the Pashtun question for India’s Afghan policy.
While Afghanistan is not against a limited presence of NATO troops, they’re seeking a stable country and looking at active engagement.
Khurshid also hailed Karzai’s leadership, saying the upcoming presidential elections were a “testament to the fact.
While trade and counter-terrorism are expected to dominate the meeting, it will also be an opportunity for the regional block to enhance cooperation with Afghanistan.
Khurshid underlined the need to give further boost to bilateral trade ties in order to meet the requirements of the people of both Pakistan and India.
Devyani’s arrest and strip-search has led the Indian government to retaliate and cut back on US diplomats’ privileges in the last one month.
Khurshid said there should not be lack of will to tackle terrorism and achievements of 12 years should not go to waste.
Minister said the matter is dealt with agencies entirely on merits of security requirement.
Is it unreasonable to expect our diplomat to serve with dignity,asks Khurshid
