Pakistan’s foreign minister, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has cautioned against “diplomatic point scoring” on terrorism during his historic visit to India. This is the first visit by an official from Pakistan in 12 years. Zardari arrived in Goa, India, on Thursday to lead a delegation to a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit headed by India. Despite strained ties between the two countries over long-standing disputes, Zardari’s visit is expected to be a sign of reconciliation between the rivals. During the SCO conference, Zardari highlighted that the eradication of terrorism is a joint responsibility and his country is committed to regional and global efforts to eliminate terrorism. Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, however, raised the issue of cross-border terrorism, which India has long accused Pakistan of funding.
