Istanbul (Turkey), June 9 (ANI): Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma has asked Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism for restoring trust between the two nations.
On the sidelines of the third Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) Summit here on Tuesday, Sharma met Qureshi and said that peace and stability in Pakistan will help create a positive environment of economic engagement between India and Pakistan.
"I told Pakistan Foreign Minister that what needs to be restored is the trust quotient, which can be done only if the terror syndicate or the infrastructure of terrorism is dismantled, because peace and stability in the region and better understanding between both nation will help in creating up very positive environment of economic engagement," Sharma told reporters.
Talking on the recovery of global economic crisis, Sharma said that Asian economies are making a significant contribution to the global economic recovery.
"Asian economies are making a substantial contribution to the global economic recovery and their share has significantly grown over the years. There is need of a new political and economic architecture in global governance so that it is inclusive, representative and equitable. That time has come now, and the countries of Asia, as major stakeholders in the global structures will play a defining role in the new economic architecture," Sharma said.
He urged more global cooperation beyond the already successful economic stimulus strategies.
