Pathankot terror attack: We will give a befitting reply, says Rajnath Singh

New Delhi: In a cautious reaction to the terror strike in Pathankot, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said any attack will be given a befitting reply even as India wants good relations with Pakistan.

"Pakistan is our neighbouring country. We want good relations with not just Pakistan but with all our neighbours.

We also want peace but if there is any terror attack on India, we will give a befitting reply," he said.

He was commenting on the attack by suspected Pakistani terrorists at Air Force base in Pathankot this morning in which four terrorists were killed and two IAF men injured.

Singh said he was happy that the security forces -- army jawans, paramilitary jawans and jawans of the Punjab police -- were giving a befitting reply.

"The country is proud of our security forces and our jawans," he said.
