WINDHOEK, 19 FEB (NAMPA) – Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah expressed sincere condolences to the victims and injured of the Srinagar-Jammu Highway at Jammu and Kashmir in northern India in a statement on Tuesday.
At least 40 Indian Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in a bomb attack by militants on their convoy in Indian-administered Kashmir on 14 February 2019.
“Namibia has learned with revulsion, the dastardly terrorist attack against the Indian Central Reserve Police Force personnel in Srinagar-Jammu Highway in the Kashmir Pulwama district,” Nandi-Ndaitwah said.
Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Pakistan-based Islamist group, claimed responsibility for the attack.
It is the deadliest militant attack on Indian forces in Kashmir since the Indian rule began in 1989.
Nandi-Ndaitwah said Namibia condemns the attack against the Indian Police Force and stands in solidarity with India to resolutely fight all forms of terrorism and to bring those responsible to book.
“We call on the international community to condemn terrorism in all its forms and manifestations [and] those identified as terrorist organisations under international law,” she added.
