New Delhi (Sputnik) — Russia has reiterated its support for India’s fight against cross-border terrorism. During the 16th Indo-Russian Inter-Governmental Commission on Military Cooperation on October 26, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the "consolidation of all responsible efforts is what it takes to fight this plague of the 21st century (terrorism). I don’t believe that someone could be a terrorist on Monday and on Tuesday transform into a representative of the moderate opposition… What is absolutely unacceptable when it comes to counter-terrorism is the use of double, and even triple standards.”
