Brussels, July 14 : European Parliament’s Chairman of the Delegation for Relations with India Geoffrey Van Orden today condemned the Amarnath terror attack and ruled out on Pakistan to cooperate with India to combat terrorism and develop peaceful relations with the country.
“This is a most atrocious crime which follows a series of terrorist attacks and other provocations designed to destabilise the political situation in Jammu & Kashmir,” He stated in a press release.
“We stand resolutely with India in her fight against terrorism and hope that those responsible will rapidly be brought to justice. We call upon the government of Pakistan to cooperate in this and to enhance its efforts to suppress terrorists and extremists and develop peaceful relations with India,” asserted Van Orden.
Within a span of five minutes, militants attacked twice in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district killing seven and injuring 18 devotees who were going to Jammu after visiting the Amarnath cave shrine.
