aid from same source: Russia


Vinay Shukla in Moscow | June 13, 2003 19:32 IST

Russia believes the terrorists operating in Jammu and Kashmir and Chechnya are aided and abetted by the same sources, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Losyukov said.

"Ring-leaders of these bands have got training from one and the same instructors, including on the territory of Afghanistan," Losyukov told in an interview to PTI and The Hindu.

He said Russia and India are of the view that terrorist acts cannot be justified by any political, ethnic, religious, socio-economic or other considerations.
 
"Here the policy of double standards is inadmissible. All terrorists should be equally treated. The terrorists wherever they are located, must know that justice will reach out to them," Losyukov said.

The minister stressed that the fight against terrorism must also be directed against those who give sanctuary and financial and other backing to them.
