Swaraj noted that India's diplomatic presence in Pyongyang was necessary to keep open channels of communication with... Еще North Korea. «As far as the question of embassy goes, our embassy there [in North Korea] is very small, but there is in fact an embassy. I told Secretary Tillerson that some of their friendly countries should maintain embassies there so that some channels of communication are kept open,» said the Indian diplomat. Tillerson also lauded India's «generous contributions» to the fight against terrorism, adding that «in the fight against terrorism, the United States will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with India. Terrorist safe havens will not be tolerated.»
