JAIPUR- Expressing concern over frequent ceasefire violations, Indian Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar today cautioned Pakistan that it should avoid increasing tension along the border as it would not be beneficial to it.
"We fully believe Pakistan should mend its ways, because it would not be beneficial to Pakistan to increase tension with India," Javadekar said at a press conference here.
"They are holding talks with ‘terrorists’, than with us. This will not work. Talks on border are already being continued in flag meetings," he said, reiterating Indian Prime Minister NarendraModi's
"We are always worried about Pakistan, what is happening in Pakistan. Former Prime Minister AtalBihari Vajpayee used to say a phrase “you can choose a friend, not a neighbor. Pakistan is our neighbor," Javadekar said.
"We want stability and prosperity in Pakistan because that is how we both (India-Pak) can progress together," he said.
"But unfortunately, the fragility which we are experiencing in Pakistan has made the situation a little difficult. We will try our best for good relations," he said. "What Pakistan is doing for the last 15 days reflects its domestic situation," he said.
