Modi said he deeply appreciated Russia’s support of “our actions to fight cross-border terrorism that threatens our entire region”.

The remarks assume significance as it comes in the wake of India’s response to attack on Army camps with surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

India has also launched a diplomatic blitz to isolate Pakistan, a country it accuses of sponsoring and aiding cross-border terrorism.
