Pak not a friend, but neighbour: V K Singh

Pakistan is not a friend but a neighbour and though India wants good relationship with its neighbouring countries, it cannot happen at the cost of security, Union Minister General (Retd) V K Singh said today.

"Pakistan is not a friend but a neighbouring country. India wants good relationships with all neighbouring countries, but not at the cost of security," the MoS in the Ministry of External Affairs said while talking to reporters here.

He said Pakistan should also think what type of relationship it wants with its neighbour.
The Minister said India is on its way to have a cordial relationship with Pakistan, but the outcome will be clear in the future.

To a question on the 39 Indians held captive by ISIS in Iraq, the Minister said there is no negative news so far.

On BJP supporting FDI, Singh said the party opposed it in retail business, but it will be better in larger trade.

The former Army chief was here to attend an Army event.
