Union Ministry for External Affairs deserves all compliments for its firm policy whereby US continues to target Pakistan as the most notorious country in terms of nurturing terrorism even though India politely declined to obey US dictate for breaking complete ties with North Korea including closing its embassy there which has just two diplomats presently. Already India has minimal trade-relations with North Korea.
Instead Union Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj successfully elaborated stand of India to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that embassies of some of friendly countries of US should remain there so that some channels of communication remain open.
