UK NSA speaks to Ajit Doval, promises to extend all support to combat terrorism

Following the deadly attack in Pulwama, the US National Security Adviser, (NSA) John Bolton had on February 16 also assured Indian NSA Ajit Doval that America supports India’s right to self-defense.

The UK’s National Security Advisor, (NSA) Mark Sedwill, spoke to his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on Thursday and expressed solidarity with India in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack. In the telephonic conversation between the two NSAs, Sedwill offered all assistance, including intelligence-sharing, in dealing with any form of terrorism, official sources said.

UK NSA Mark Sedwill said that all assistance in dealing with any form of terrorism will be extended to India bilaterally through counter-terrorism cooperation, intelligence sharing and by bringing the perpetrators of terrorist attacks to justice.

The conversation transpired amidst heightened tensions between India and Pakistan sparked by the cowardly Pulwama attack, carried out by Pakistan supported terror organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammad, which claimed the lives of 44 CRPF soldiers.

India, suffering the continous terrorist attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups, retaliated against the ghastly act by striking a JeM camp in Balakot, a town in Mansehra District in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

On February 26, the IAF fighter jets had pierced deep into Pakistan territory with their Mirage 2000 fighters and bombed six different locations in the area spread over several acres in Balakot wrecking the terror camps into shambles. Petrified by India’s quick and strong retribution Pakistan had tried to attack India’s military installations.

Following repeated terror attacks by Pakistan based terrorists, the bilateral ties between India and Pakistan stand further worsened. Several countries have expressed solidarity with India and condemned Pakistan for breeding terrorism.

While the US ambassador to India, Kenneth Juster, was the first to offer his condolences, all other countries eventually extended their support to unite in the fight against terrorism. The US issued a warning to its people against traveling to Pakistan after the incident that took place on February 14.

Following the deadly attack in Pulwama, the US National Security Adviser, (NSA) John Bolton had on February 16 assured Indian NSA Ajit Doval that America supports India’s right to self-defense. Again on February 28, Bolton dialed up Ajit Doval to discuss the current situation in the region.

In fact, as per reports around 48 countries across the world have condemned the Pulwama attack and have extended their support to India to fight terrorism.
