"I think the prism through which they see this issue has definitely been altered," Rao told Karan Thapar on "Devil's Advocate" programme on CNN-IBN.
She was replying to a question on whether India saw a change in Pakistan's attitude towards terrorism during the recently concluded Foreign Secretary-level talks.
Asked whether it was a positive development, Rao said it was an outcome that India must take note of.
"I think when they speak of the fact that non-state elements in this relationship need to be tackled, that we must look at safe havens and sanctuaries, that we must look at fake currency, we must look at all the aspects that are concerned with the business of terror, I think that is a concrete development," she said.
Its good if their attitude toward international terrorism is, indeed, changed; they have to demonstrate the same by locking up all terrorists operating out of Pakistan irrespective of their nationality as well as irrespective of whether their targets are Pakistan or India or any other Foreign Country!
