Dialogue is the way for major Asian powers to secure self-interest: Akbar

Dialogue is the way for major Asian powers to secure self-interest: Akbar

New Delhi, Sept 15 (UNI) Suggesting that both India and China have the potential to lay down the path to be followed through dialogue, Minister of State for External Affairs MJ Akbar today said the powers of Asia realise that it was counter-productive to allow disputes and differences to become conflicts. Major nations should therefore opt for dialogue to secure their self-interest and manage their economic welfare, Mr Akbar said at a conference on ‘Changing Asia 2017: Perspective on Regional and Global Cooperation’, organised jointly by The Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses and the German Institute of Global and Area Studies (GIGA), Hamburg. Describing how Asia was reinventing itself with powerful dynamics, he said the continent was not only in the process of reinventing itself, it was doing so through solutions. The Minister underscored that despite being a conglomeration of nations with diverse languages, religions and political systems, Asia had one common stand – creating a better economy and better life for its people. The continent is beginning to act as a vanguard of future developments globally, he stated. Terming terrorism as the most dangerous ‘ism’ of the 21st Century, the Minister emphasised that prosperity was impossible without peace and the biggest threat to peace emerges from terrorism.
