New York: External affairs minister S Jaishankar called Pakistan a challenging neighbour. He added that while there is terrorism existing globally, there is no country in the world that sponsors terror consciously and deliberately against India. While speaking at the interactive session, the EAM said, "You have a neighbour who will not trade with you, who is a member of World Trade Organisation (WTO) and before that of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), but will not extend Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status even though they are legally obliged to. You have a neighbour who will not allow you connectivity, who in many ways has slowed down regionalism because of concern that it might integrate them more with our economy, who filters people to people interaction. It's a very challenging neighbour," he added.
