‘The world must unite against terrorism and its supporters’
The “cruel” attack in Pulwama shows that the “time for talks has passed,” said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, reiterating that terrorism is a serious danger to the world’s “peace and stability.”
“Now, it is required that the world unites against terrorism and those who support it. Hesitation to take action against terrorism and those who support it is akin to encouraging terrorism,” Mr. Modi said, addressing a joint press conference with visiting Argentine President Mauricio Macri.
Mr. Marci condoled the death of the CRPF personnel in the February 14 terror attack and said that India and Argentina must work together to fight the menace of terrorism.
As India explores diplomatic options to pressure Pakistan to act on terrorist groups based on its soil, Islamabad on Monday summoned its envoy in India for consultations. “We have called back our High Commissioner for consultations,” Dr. Mohammad Faisal, Spokesperson of Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a tweet.
Soon after the Pulwama attack, India too summoned its High Commissioner in Islamabad Ajay Bisaria for consultations.
