'War is no solution, dialogue a better alternative': Khurshid

Dehradun, Aug. 17 (ANI): Asserting that India believes in strengthening relations with its neighbours through talks, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Saturday said dialogue is a better option in improving ties with the neighbouring nations.

Khurshid, who was addressing a workshop on 'Public Diplomacy Initiative' at the Doon University here, said 'war is no solution and persistent dialogue is definitely a better alternative through which we are trying to normalise ties with our neighbours'.

The External Affairs Minister said India occupies the foremost position among the developing nations, and added that it owes its pre-eminent position among the developing countries to its foreign policy founded by former Prime Ministers Jawahar Lal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Indira Gandhi who displayed great foresight while framing the country's foreign policy.
