After US, UK warns India of more terror attacks

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Jan 22 (ANI): United Kingdom has warned New Delhi that Al Qaeeda and The Taliban are planning to attack India.

The warning comes days after US Defence Secretary Robert Gates gave a similar warning when he was in New Delhi.

UK High Commissioner to India Richard Stagg said: "We are clear that there is continuing threat of terrorist attack, there are people in this part of the world who are planning attacks. Some of these forces have the capability to launch such attacks."

United Kingdom, which is holding a key conference on Afghanistan in London next week, has also asked Pakistan to do more against Lashkar-e-Toiba on the eastern front.

Talking to reporters in New Delhi, the British envoy said that UK is ready to support Pakistan in clamping down on the terrorists.

"There is more to be done in tackling the problem of Afghan Taliban in the west and tackling Lashkar-e-Toiba networks in the east," Stagg said.

More than ten thousand British troops are present in Afghanistan and are often attacked and killed by the Taliban and Al Qaeeda terrorists.

"We have made it clear to the Pakistan Government that these terror groups should be prevented from supporting insurgencies across the border," Stagg said.

The British envoy lauded India's efforts in Afghanistan, and said: "We think that very substantial help that India is giving to Afghanistan is very effective and valuable.

Stagg also believes that UK is taking lessons from India's role in Afghanistan, and said that its efforts are under valued and less understood and is sometimes much more effective than the help coming from Western Europe or North America. By Naveen Kapoor(ANI)
