New Delhi: On Wednesday, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that India is committed to upholding territorial integrity and sovereignty and that any border issues can be resolved by mutual talks.
"Our consistent message is that unresolved border issues can be resolved bilaterally, when approached in the right spirit and in an atmosphere free from violence and hostility,” Ms Swaraj said.
She said India is keen on shaping relationships in a manner that synchronises with India's economic priorities. With this "diplomacy for development approach, each global interaction is now focussed on building partnerships to promote our transformative flagship programmes such as Make in India, Smart Cities, Digital India, AMRUT and Namami Gange”, she said.
The Minister said the Modi government is also focussed on making India a human resource power to be reckoned with, "by connecting our talented youth to global opportunities".
This is being achieved through Skill India partnerships with several countries, as well as under the aegis of the GIAN programme, the Minister said.
