At Brics, Russian Silence on Pak Terror Stuns India

At Brics, Russian Silence on Pak Terror Stuns IndiaBENAULIM (GOA): China blocked India’s attempts to name JeM and LeT in the Goa Declaration+ , wherein the Brics member states pledged to “relentlessly pursue” outfits designated terrorist groups by the UNSC, but what has hurt the government more, sources said, is Russia’s disinclination to argue India’s case.
The result, of course, was a declaration which failed to address India’s core concern, or the issue of state-sponsored terrorism+ . What compounded the matter for India was Russia’s recent military flirtation with Pakistan in the form of an anti-terror exercise. In current global power play, Russia is increasingly seen as needing China more than the other way round, but Moscow’s submission to Beijing’s position on an issue related to India’s security has still come as a revelation to New Delhi.
