In his remarks at the town hall, Jaishankar also said India’s history with the United States is a troubled one.
“A lot of our problems with Pakistan are directly attributable to the support which the United States gave to Pakistan,” he added.
But today, there is a US that is able to take a long view, which is actually able to say “India has a different history with Russia and we have to take that into account”, he said.
“Part of the reason why Quad has worked is that the four of us have given each other that degree of latitude and understanding,” Jaishankar said.
India’s history with Russia is different from the latter’s history with the US, Japan or Australia, and everybody in the Quad does not have an identical position on everything, he said.
“Had it been the case, we would have expected everybody to have the same stand on Pakistan as ours,” Jaishankar said.
