NEW DELHI :
INDIA on Saturday slammed Pakistan for cross-border terrorism, warning that it will take every possible action to safeguard its national security. In a reaction to the November 19 terror attack planned by the globally banned Pakistani terror outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Government summoned the High Commissioner of Pakistan and conveyed its message to him in New Delhi.
Lodging a strong protest at the terror attack, which was foiled by the alert Indian security forces, the Ministry Of External Affairs (MEA) demanded that Pakistan must desist from its policy of supporting terrorists and terror groups operating from its territory and dismantle the terror infrastructure operated by terrorist outfits to launch attacks in other countries.
The ministry reiterated India’s long-standing demand that Pakistan fulfill its international obligations and bilateral commitments to not allow any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India in any manner. In an official statement issued by the Ministry Of External Affairs, the Government said that it is “firmly and resolutely committed to take all necessary measures to safeguard its national security in the fight against terrorism.” A major terror attack was foiled by Indian security forces in Nagrota, Jammu and Kashmir on November 19.
