NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has asked visiting British Minister Lord Tariq Ahmad to ensure security of India’s diplomatic missions in the UK and prevent misuse of democratic freedoms.
Jaishankar’s assertions during a meeting with Lord Ahmad, the Minister of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, came against the backdrop of the vandalisation of the Indian High Commission in London in March by pro-Khalistan supporters.
Jaishankar took to Twitter to share the issues he raised during his discussions with Lord Ahmad.
“Met with UK MOS Lord Tariq Ahmad today in New Delhi Underlined the obligation to ensure security of our diplomatic missions and prevent misuse of democratic freedoms,” the External Affairs Minister said on May 29.
In April, the Union Home Ministry had handed over the probe in the case of attack on the Indian mission in London to the National Investigation Agency after a meeting with representatives from Britain.
