S Jaishankar: India is not a disruption, firmly dealing with terrorism 

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said, India's way is not to be disruptive and it is more of a decider than an abstainer.

The remarks came out when several countries have called for a greater Indian role in the Indo-Pacific, where the minister reassured that it is not India's way to be mercantilist and to be self-centred.

Jaishankar, addressing a gathering at the Raisina Dialogue paid heed to the tension between US and Iran and said both are individualistic countries and final outcome will rest on the players involved. 

On discussing ties with China, the minister said it is necessary for neighbours to reach the level of mutual understanding on crucial issues.

"Neither India nor China can get India-China relations wrong. Our relationship is unique. Each country has gone up in the world altogether. It is important that the two countries find equilibrium in ties, we have to get along with each other," he said.

"India owes it to itself and to the world to be a just power," he said.

Jaishankar added, "India is not a disruptor and is firmly dealing with terrorism."

The country is a "prisoner of its past image. We have to get over it. There was a time when we spoke more than what we did. It is changing now," the minister said.
