Russia has called off its joint military exercise with Pakistan after the Uri terror attack in Jammu & Kashmir.


Russia confirmed its continued support for Indian government counter terrorism efforts. The country offered condolences to the families of the victims and wished a rapid recovery to all those injured.


After the Islamabad had confirmed about exercise, the Indian External Affairs Ministry had sent a letter to Russia in which India said that Moscow should keep New Delhi’s sensitivity in mind while conducting joint military drills with Pakistan.


Russia's move is a big diplomatic gain for India at international level. The move comes just a day after 18 soldiers of Indian Army were martyred in a gutless attack by four extremely armed terrorists at an Army camp in Jammu & Kashmir's Uri district.


India took the decision to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping. According to the report, India will adopt the strategy to present all actionable evidence against Pakistan if required at international bodies.
