Reiterating government’s stand that terror and talks cannot go together, External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday said that Pakistan’s stand has changed in recent times. Replying to opposition’s questions on government’s foriegn policies in Rajya Sabha, Swaraj said it is the first time after Pathankot terror attack that ‘Pakistan has not gone on a denial mode’.
