Bid to improve ties

Avinesh Gopal
Saturday, August 02, 2014

INDIA is committed to explore and improve bilateral ties with other countries, including Fiji.

State Minister for External Affairs General (Ret) V K Singh told journalists from foreign countries in Delhi last week that "relations will see an upward profile with each one of your country".

"People to people contacts will become better and whatever means we can explore bilaterally that will be beneficial to both countries, we are committed.

"We will reach out bilaterally and develop business relationship. It has to be accepted mutually.

"We will continue engaging everyone who has stood by us. We want to ensure that areas neglected in some way or the other are no longer neglected.

"We have reached out and we want to ensure to assist countries that are with us."

Mr Singh said India had not unduly leaned towards any country.

"We feel that we should pursue our own interests. India has its own diaspora and we are quite clear. If anyone from our diaspora in the world wants to do something here, you are most welcome."
