Islamabad: Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao on Thursday said that India and Pakistan need to look at the problems that divide them and have caused tensions between them, in a way so many other countries in the world have done in the past, and worked towards resolving them.
Replying to a query related to the recent London School of Economics (LSE) report that states Pakistan''s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) for having links with the Afghan-Taliban, during an exclusive interview with ANI, Ms. Rao said: “We have many reports like that….obviously these reports point to certain problems that concern the activities of the way terror has grown in our region and the way it has, in a sense, been able to thrive because of certain policies and certain approaches that have existed. I don’t think we can deny those realities either.”
“But the fact is as two neighbours we exist side by side, literally. And, it is essential that we look at this, look at the problems that divide us that have caused tensions between us, in a manner so many other countries in the world have done,” Ms. Rao said.
Elaborating further Ms. Rao said: “I mean, look at the history of, if you know, your 19th century European history, the earliest history of the 20th century, look at the differences that used to exist between France and Germany between the United Kingdom and France, between the United Kingdom and Germany, I mean, all these countries have been able to solve their problems. They went through conflict, they went through terrible suffering but ultimately the way forward was to try resolve these differences and to come up with solutions that inabled them to co-exist peacefully.”
“I think there are many lessons to be learnt for India and Pakistan also from these situations,” Ms. Rao further remarked. (ANI)
