Uri Attack : International Community Responds



Vikas Swarup, the spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs has shared the comments from various Nations in response to the Uri Attack of Sunday, 18th September 2016.

Many of these nations such as US, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, UAE, Mauritius, Bahrain, Nepal, Bangladesh and UK used strong words to condemn the attack and expressed their solidarity with India.

'United States is committed to our strong partnership with Indian government to combat terrorism.' - US

'...stand with the Government of India in the fight against terrorism.' - Canada

'Japan expressed its solidarity with India in the fight against terrorism.' - Japan

'More than ever, we stand alongside India, France's strategic partner, to fight against this scourge.' - France 

'... according to New Delhi, the attached on military unit near the town of Uri was committed from the territory of Pakistan.' - Russia

'... stands with India in its fight against terrorism.' - Bhutan

'...support to all actions it may take to confront and eradicate terrorism.' - UAE.


'Mauritius stands in solidarity with the Government of India' - Mauritius 

'full support to the friendly Republic of India in their actions to counter terrorism' - Bahrain 

'Bangladesh firmly stands besides India at this difficult hour' - Bangladesh 

'... stands shoulder to shoulder with India in the fight against terrorism, and in bringing the perpetrators to justice.' - United Kingdom


It is to be noted that the Russia has named Pakistan in their statement and France has named the terror groups including the perpetrator 'Jaish-e-Mohammad'.

In addition to this, UAE and Bahrain said that they support any action that India might take to bring the preparators to justice. This is a strong statement.

It is true that this is a major attack on an Indian military establishment in decades and has rightly drawn such reactions from the International community, but are these comments and condemnations enough? The Nation is expecting strong retaliation from India but the Govt. is yet to take any visible action.

This action might be diplomatic or military or both.
