India, UK will fight terrorism together: British minister on Pathankot attack

Ahmedabad: British Minister of State for Employment Priti Patel on Thursday condemned the Pathankot terror attack and said that London will join hands with India and other countries to fight the grave issue of terrorism.

“We, the British Government, will work side by side with the Indian Government and all other governments on this issue to make sure that we support India and those affected by issues of terrorism and attacks of this nature,” Patel said in Ahmedabad.

The Gujarati-origin minister, who is presently on a three-day visit to India, also paid condolences to all those affected by the attack in Pathankot.

Patel, however, refused to comment on India-Pakistan relations and said it is for the governments of the two countries to discuss and resolve all issues.

Six terrorists were neutralised in the terror attack at the Pathankot air base that began in the wee hours on January 1.

Seven security personnel were martyred in the terror attack.
