Dubai, Dec 10:Indian national security adviser MK Narayanan has warned Gulf Arab and Western states to prepare for a new wave of terrorist attacks on soft economic targets by highly motivated terrorists trained in camps along Pakistan border with Afghanistan.
Speaking at a security conference in Manama, Bahrain, he said new al Qaeda training schools along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border were breeding a new generation of terrorists.
According to Indian intelligence, recruits from 14 countries were being groomed to target high profile politicians as well as economic infrastructure such as oil pipelines and storage depots, electricity pylons and ocean-going tankers, a local news website reported.
Mr Naryanan said training had become ''extremely vigorous'' and Gulf Arab states were highly vulnerable to such threats.
Recruits were well-funded, well-armed and being taught ''asymmetric war techniques'' which focus on a target's weak spots, he claimed.
