NEW DELHI: The Easter Sunday terror attacks in Sri Lanka last year are a grim reminder of the kind of challenges India and its neighbourhood faces, says Gopal Baglay, India’s High Commissioner To Sri Lanka. In an exclusive interview to StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, Baglay says India, Sri Lanka and the Maldives are closely cooperating to tackle the menace of terrorism. Baglay, who took charge earlier this month, says the leadership in both the countries attaches a very high level of importance to the bilateral relationship. There are no outstanding political issues to settle, so my job is to build on the pre-existing synergies and strengthen ties through constructive engagement, he says.
