“We are very much encouraged,” Basit told media persons here reacting to Modi’s statement in an interview to a news channel Tuesday night.

Modi had said that “relationships with all countries should be balanced” and “no country should intimidate us and neither should we do it” when asked whether he would deal with Pakistan with a firm hand if he comes to power.
