    External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has reacted strongly to the desecration of the Indian flag by Khalistan supporters outside the Indian High Commission in Britain and vandalism in the High Commission. He blamed the British government for the lapse in security. He said that the British government has failed to fulfill its security obligations.

    Speaking at the BJYM youth dialogue program in Bengaluru, India’s External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that the country where the embassy or high commission is located, it is the responsibility of that country to provide security to diplomats working there. The security of the premises of the Embassy or High Commission should be taken care of. But their obligations have not been fulfilled by the British Government.

    We have discussed this with the British Government. The Foreign Minister said that some countries have a different attitude towards the security of their citizens and a different attitude towards the people of other countries. But as foreign minister, he will not accept such differential treatment. Let us tell you that Khalistan supporters have created a lot of ruckus in London in protest against the police action on Khalistan supporter Amritpal Singh. On March 19, during a demonstration outside the High Commission, Khalistan supporters removed the Indian flag from the mission and put the Khalistan flag there. However, later Indian officials hoisted a bigger tricolor there than before.

    The Government of India had strongly objected to the attack on the High Commission and the lack of adequate security arrangements there. The Ministry of External Affairs summoned the most senior diplomat of the British High Commission and expressed its protest and questioned the lack of security in the High Commission. In view of India’s tough stance, the London Metropolitan Police had tightened the security arrangements there. The British government had deployed 24 police buses to protect the Indian High Commission. Along with this, mounted police squad was also seen ready on the spot.
