Commenting on India-China relations, he said, "There is no doubt that we have certain difference of opinions on a few issues and the border dispute is one of them. At the same time, India-China relations are growing, the trade is also going well and after the Wuhan summit, the overall direction is on the positive side. There are certain issues with China that we need to discuss, maybe we have to agree to disagree."
Terming Pakistan's decision to send back India's envoy as one-sided, he said, "That is a one-sided move. We have already said that it has been done in a rush. We hope that better sense prevails."
Asked about the threat of terror attacks, Chauthaiwale said, "They (Pakistan) consider terrorism as a part of state policy. India is prepared. Our security forces will do whatever is required to dismantle this terror network."
