Abhu Dhabi: India said on Thursday that it will keep the global spotlight “firmly” on cross-border militancy and on the epicenter of the global menace, in an apparent reference to Pakistan on the 12th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar applauded the courage of India’s security forces for continuing to defend the country “so resolutely”.
“Will keep the global spotlight firmly on the menace of cross-border militancy against India. And on the epicentre of global terrorism,” he said in a tweet.
Jaishankar is currently visiting the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He arrived here on Wednesday night on the second leg of his six-day three-nation tour to Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Seychelles, which began on Tuesday.
The visit is seen as important as it comes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic that has wreaked havoc across the world.
“12 years since the horrific 26/11 #MumbaiTerrorAttacks. Pay my homage to its victims. Applaud the courage of our security forces, who continue to defend our nation so resolutely,” he said.
