Taking into consideration the rough attitude by Pakistan and China regarding the the Line of Control (LoC), International Border (IB), Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday made it clear that the neighbors should stop promoting terrorism, infiltration and desist from provocative actions such as border transgressions for better relations with India. He also stated that peace and prosperity cannot be attained in the Asian continent until there is a harmonious relation is not maintained between India and the other two Asian countries including Pakistan and China.

Mr. Rajnath Singh, while addressing Indo-Tibetan Border Police personnel in Jammu’s Samba district that was subjected to many militant attacks since last year, he said that it was always one of the major goals of India to have friendly relations with neighboring countries and always look forward to extend the hand of friendship to Pakistan and China. The statement can bring a much-awaited thaw in the relations after the National Security Advisers’ meeting in August was called off over invitation to separatists.
