S Jaishankar at Raisina Dialogue : Indian Terror in Pakistan is a ‘fantasy of others’

While speaking at a panel discussion at ORF(Observer Research Foundation)’s Raisana dialogue, Foreign secretary S Jaishankar remarked that Balochistan and Kulbhushan Yadav were ‘fantasies’ of others while answering a question.

This comes at a time when Pakistan has accused India of perpetrating terror in Balochistan. It has claimed that Kulbhushan Jadhav is a RAW agent. Some media houses in India like Quint have also peddled Pakistani lies.

The lady in the audience remarked that Kulbhushan Yadav’s confessions were enough to get a flavour of India’s state sponsored terror. She said that there was little mention of Indian state sponsored terror and there was a need to respect sovereignty of Pakistan. She question Mr Jaishankar as to why he did not mention Kulbhushan Yadav or Balochistan while speaking about terror in the discussion.

While replying to the question S Jaishankar said that his brief was only to stick to facts and not dwell on other’s fantasies. He was hinting at Pakistani claims on Indian terrorism. General Petreaus also remarked that he had never heard of Indian terror from organisations like CIA.

Observations on India’s role and other big disruptions happening in the world

Mr Jaishankar also remarked that India is a solution to ensure that the rules based order stays intact. This is in sync with India’s attempts to be a more active and vocal global player under the current NDA government.

Mr Jaishankar also doubted whether China would be a model to other countries as a global power in future. He felt that Chinese behaviour, as it consolidates its place in the world, would be an ‘open question’. He also predicted four big disruptions that the world would see in near future. According to him, four imminent disruptions include rise of China, behaviour of the USA, terrorism and implication of non-market economics.

Mr Jaishankar was speaking at the session ‘A disruptive world : solutions for tomorrow’. Maurice Gourdault Montagne, General (Retd) David .H. Petreaus were also part of the panel discussion. The session was moderated by Samir Saran. The panel was discussing tectonic and unprecedented challenged that the year 2017 presented to the world.
