STATEMENT by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia on the terrorist attack in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir

Monday, 19 September 2016 16:10

We strongly condemn the terrorist attack against an army base in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri in the early hours of September 18, which killed 17 and injured 30 service personnel. We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and wish a rapid recovery to all those injured.

Regarding the Pathankot Indian air base attack in January 2016, we are very concerned about the terrorist attacks near the Line of Control. We are also concerned about the fact that, according to New Delhi, the army base near Uri was attacked from Pakistani territory.

We believe that this criminal act will be investigated properly, and that its organisers and perpetrators will be held accountable.

We confirm our continued support for the Indian government’s counterterrorism efforts.
