India cannot declare any Country as a ‘Terror State’ as it has to maintain Diplomatic relations with all the Countries
A Private Member’s Bill, which seeks to declare Pakistan a country sponsoring terrorism, will be opposed by Government in Parliament.
Independent member Rajeev Chandrasekhar in Rajya Sabha has moved the bill titled,’The Declaration of Countries as Sponsor of Terrorism Bill, 2016′, moved by Independent Member Rajeev Chandrasekhar in the Rajya Sabha,
The Bill seeks to call out the States like Pakistan that continue to associate, promote, patronise and sponsor terrorism against our nation” and also provides for snapping all the economic and trade relations with that country.
Home Ministry official added that,”India cannot declare any country as a ‘Terror State’ as it has to maintain diplomatic relations with all the countries.
Besides this, it is very rare that the Government supports any Private Member’s Bill”.
Home Ministry has conveyed to Rajya Sabha Secretariat about its opposition to Bill, saying such a move may “jeopardise” the international relations.
