Speaking to The Indian Express on his way back from Myanmar, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid expressed "disappointment" at the stand Malik had taken on Saeed. "That's not fair because we have given more than enough evidence to begin the process. If he were to say that you can't conclude the process on this, that's another matter. But I think there is more than enough evidence to begin the process of making them accountable," he said.
About other controversial remarks made by Malik, Khurshid said: "These are not remarks that should be taken beyond a particular level. I think we should take the important things that he said, that are relevant, and leave the rest of the packaging, which sure was avoidable. But you know, if he felt he wanted to make a point, that's for really him to take a call."
Choosing to look at the positive side of Malik's visit, the minister said that he saw it as significant that Malik wanted to come and came. "If you don't want to engage on certain topics, certain issues, then you would avoid a meeting. He was anxious and literally persuaded the Home Minister for an early date."
