New Delhi:

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday touched upon how China went on to emerge as the power, it had aspired to become. Jaishankar said India should also start the preparations and take the ‘big learning’ out of China story that ‘unless a society has mindset to decisively address its current issues, it won't go up in the world’.

Asserting the need to look at the China story systematically, the foreign minister said, “This China will impact the world more and it is important to understand the thinking of this China.”

“It is important there is a leader to leader understanding of each other's thinking”, added Jaishankar.

Jaishankar, who was addressing an event in Delhi, said India has the less lethargic governance mindset today than it had in the past.

He added that India is now tackling problems with great deal of purpose and determination and not looking to leave problems for the future.

Patting government's back for solving the 'longstanding' issues, the EAM said, “Lot of what we are doing today are accumulations of problems we have not addressed. Look at the Citizenship issue, it started 50 years ago, Article 370 went on for 70 years, and the Ayodhya issue. We tended to put it off.”

Jaishankar reiterated government’s resolve against terrorism as he said that no country became victim of terrorism like India. He said that despite the continuous efforts on the part of terror perpetrators, terrorism should not be normalised.

“When Pathankot attack happened even Pakistan accepted who was the perpetrator. On this, this government is very clear who is the victim and who is the perpetrator”, said Jaishankar.
