New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Defence heads on Saturday to discuss India’s security situation in the country, particularly in the light of the Uri terror attack, reports said.
The chiefs of Army and Air Force and the vice chief of the Navy attended the meeting with the PM.
The meeting takes place amid heightened tension in India and Pakistan following September 18 attack at Indian army base by Pak-backed terrorists which left 18 soldiers killed.
While India has held Pakistan responsible for the audacious strike, the Prime Minister had reportedly adopted a policy to isolate the country diplomatically and brand it as a terrorist state.
This was reflected in the United Nations where India described Pakistan as the “sponsor of Ivy League of terrorism”
Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar summoned Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit on Wednesday and presented to him the evidence of Pakistan’s role in the attack.
However, Pakistan has denied having any role in the attack and said all allegations are “baseless and irresponsible.
