Opening of trade ties on the Wagah border or resuming cricket series with Pakistan will not end the menace of terrorism in India, Gopalaswami Parthasarathy, former Ambassador of India to Pakistan, said in Chandigarh on Sunday.
"Though all these things are necessary to build relationships with border nations, but the overall scenario needs to be looked at. If India thinks that these ties will help curb the menace of terrorism in India, it is mistaken," said Parathasarathy, who was in the city to attend a conference organised on the occasion of five decades of Indo-China's 1962 war.
Speaking about the Pakistan government's gesture of easing visa norms for Indian citizens, Parthasarathy said: "All these steps are fine, but the problem of terrorism is bigger than all this. Everybody knows how terrorism is spreading in India or had spread in the past. It is fine if both nations are building a relationship by making such moves, but it will not be having much impact on dealing with the larger problem of terrorism."
