South Asian ties based on respect for security: Sinha
NEW DELHI: Indian Foreign Minister Yashwant Sinha said on Tuesday that South Asian countries must be sensitive to each other’s security concerns, hailing Bhutan as an example for its recent crackdown on Indian rebels.
“The bottom line in our relations with neighbours must remain the need to be sensitive to each other’s security concerns and to neither encourage nor undertake any activity that might be detrimental to the security and welfare of the neighbour,” Mr Sinha said at a lecture in New Delhi. “Bhutan has moved against elements within its borders which were threatening its own sovereignty as well as the security of India,” he said. —AFP
