India does not wish to destabilise Pak: Tharoor

October 29, 2009 13:59 IST
India does not wish to destabilise Pakistan in any manner and wants to maintain good relations with that country, Union Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor said in Palakkad on Thursday.

Islamabad should make efforts to better its relationship with India, which has been under strain since the 26/11 attacks, Tharoor told mediapersons.

On Chinese objections to the Dalai Lama's visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Tharoor said anyone could visit the state, as it is a part of India.

Tharoor was speaking on the sidelines of a national workshop on 'steps to market and rejuvenate traditional paddy seeds of Kerala.'
