Sushma Swaraj raises Pulwama terror attack with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi

@EOIBeijing
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj raised the recent Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir in her bilateral meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi at Wuzhen this morning.

In her opening remarks during the meeting held on the sidelines of Russia, India, China (RIC) Foreign Ministers' meeting, Mrs Swaraj said, she is visiting China at a time when there is grief and anger in India.

Terming the attack as worse directed against the security forces, the External Affairs Minister said, the attack was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the Pakistan-based and supported terrorist organisation.

Mrs Swaraj also said, JeM is banned by the UN and other countries, and the attack is the direct result of the impunity and cover provided to the terror group and its leaders by Pakistan.

She also told Mr Wang that this is their first meeting this year and  therefore an opportune time for the two sides to take stock of the bilateral relations and look ahead for cooperation.

Mrs Swaraj is also scheduled to meet her Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. India's pre-emptive airstrike at a JeM terror camp in Balakot, the Pulwama attack and the listing of JeM Chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN are expected to figure during the RIC Foreign Ministers' meeting scheduled to be held later today.
