''We hope that such horrors will never be repeated &cannot overstate importance of countries with nuclear weapons to be responsible,'' Jaishankar said.
He further said that dangers of discriminating among terrorists, good or bad, and even yours and mine, are increasingly recognised. Terrorism is an international threat, that should not serve national strategy and nuclear terrorism even more.
