India an ally of neighbours: Saran

New Delhi, September 9 :

Indian foreign secretary Shyam Saran said here yesterday that India is an important ally of neighbours and posing no danger to neighbouring countries.

The Indian foreign secretary said, “India wants to extend its relationship with neighbours after settling border related problems.”

Appreciating the changes in Nepal, Saran said the people of Baluchistan in Pakistan have to learn from Nepal.

India has proposed to run a bus service from Pakistan to India via Kashmir and open the Gumla entrance point with China, said Saran.

Saran further that India was doing homework to extend road facilities and set up unified security posts along the border.

The Indian Home ministry has been boning up on setting up well-equipped and unified security checkposts in Raxaul, Jogbani, Sunauli and Nepalgunj.

The Indian government proposes to link Bihar state with various districts of Nepal on the border and is going to construct a 657-kilometre-long road network.
