The British Govt failed in its responsibility to provide security : S Jaishankar, EAM

The incident of Khalistanis vandalising the Indian High Commission in London

Bengaluru – Dr S Jaishankar, Union External Affairs Minister has accused the UK Government of failing to meet security obligations days after a group of pro-Khalistani protesters vandalised the Indian High Commission in London and pulled down the Tricolour on the premises. Jaishankar said, “It’s the obligation of the receiving country to provide security for a diplomat to do their work, to ensure the embassy or high commission’s premises are respected. These obligations were not met. We have had conversations with the British Government on this”. He was peaking at an event organised by Tejasvi Surya, MP of Bengaluru South.

When a group of Pro-Khalistan protestors took down the Indian flag the security provided was not up to the mark. “Many countries are very casual about security. They have a very different view about their own security and a different view about other people’s security, but I can tell you as a foreign minister that we are not going to accept this kind of differential standards,” said the EAM.

Editorial viewpoint

It is necessary that India tells Britain about its lapses in a language that they will understand, along with slamming them.
