Uri attack: PM-level meet decides to isolate Pakistan at all international groupings

In an all-party meeting convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday to discuss the response to the deadly Uri attack, it was decided that Pakistan will be isolated diplomatically at every international grouping.

ANI reported that India will present all actionable evidence at international bodies if the need arises.

Pakistan has accused India of misleading the world to cover up its "reign of terror" in Kashmir by a spate of "vitriolic" and "unsubstantiated" statements.

Sartaj Aziz, the adviser to Pakistan prime minister on foreign affairs, said: “Pakistan categorically rejects the baseless and irresponsible accusations being levelled by senior officials in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government.”

He further said that that it is deplorable that the Indian Minister (Rajnath Singh) chose to blame Pakistan for the incident even prior to conducting a proper investigation.

Singh had tweeted on Sunday that “Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified and isolated as such."

ANI quoted some sources as saying that the evidence of Pakistan’s involvement in the Uri attack are the GPS tracker movements which can be traced back to the country, Pashto literature and Pakistani army even marked the arms to be given to Pakistan at DGMO level.

Pakistani media reported that the Uri terror attack was staged. An article in The News International also spewed vitriol at Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RA&W).

The Pakistan media blamed India for the Uri attacks, saying its timing was suspicious because it coincided with Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif heading to the UN General Assembly to talk about Kashmir.

In his Firspost piece, Sreemoy Talukdar too suggested isolating Pakistan globally as a response to the Uri attack. He also suggests lobbying hard to make it a pariah nation and call for debilitating sanctions.

Apart from this, the article suggests that on the military front, India should take a proactive stance and launch counter-ops to demolish terror-training camps across the LoC using local intelligence inputs.

With inputs from PTI.
