External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Friday, 5 May, slammed his Pakistani counterpart Bilawal Bhutto Zardari as a "promoter, justifier and spokesperson" of a terrorism industry. Jaishankar's remarks came on the sidelines of the SCO foreign ministers' meeting in Goa.

"As a foreign minister of an SCO member state, Bhutto-Zardari was treated accordingly. As a promoter, justifier and a spokesperson of a terrorism industry, which is the mainstay of Pakistan, his positions were called out and they were countered including at the SCO meeting itself."

Bhutto Zardari, earlier in the day, said the "collective security of our peoples is our joint responsibility. Terrorism continues to threaten global security."

Referring to his statement, Jaishankar said, "Victims of terrorism do not sit together with perpetrators of terrorism to discuss terrorism."

The development came on the same day when five Indian Army personnel were killed in an anti-terror operation in Kashmir's Rajouri district.
