New Delhi, Nov 23: Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor has said that the Goverment does not view China as a threat of any kind.
Addressing a function here, Tharoor said, "The government of India does not view China or China's development as a threat of any kind. We always tried to develop a friendly and cooperative relationship with China which is our largest neighbour and with which we cannot afford to have relationship of antagonism."
"India is not an obstacle to China's aspirations, far less an instrument for its containment, as was wrongly suggested by some," he said, adding that scholars from both countries should broaden and deepen their understanding of each other.
When asked on the issue of multi-entry visa to suspected militant Tahawwur Rana and his wife, Tharoor said an investigation into the case is on.
