“You are asking a wrong minister, ask yours” – EAM Jaishankar’s savage reply to Pak journalist
The External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar shuts down a Pakistani reporter’s question on terrorism during an interaction with media persons at UN headquarters in New York. “How long South Asia will see terrorism from New Delhi, Kabul, Pakistan, how long they will be at war,” asked a Pakistani reporter at UN headquarters in New York.
To which S Jaishankar replied, “You are asking the wrong minister. It is the minister of Pakistan who will tell you how long Pakistan intends to practice terrorism”. THE EAM minister criticized Pakistan at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) saying that Islamabad is not good at taking advice and the world today experiences.
“Pakistan is not good at taking good advice. The world today sees them as the epicentre of terrorism. They’re ministers in Pakistan who can tell how long Pakistan intends to practice terrorism. World isn’t stupid, it increasingly calls out countries, orgs indulging in terrorism. My advice is to clean up your act and try to be good neighbour,” he added.
S Jaishankar used Hilary Clinton’s remark to warn Pakistan at United Nations. “A decade ago, Hillary Clinton during her visit to Pakistan said that if you keep snakes in your backyard you can’t expect them to bite only your neighbours, they’ll bite your own people. Pakistan is not good at taking this advice,” he said.
