Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a high-level meeting on Monday and gave his nod to "diplomatically isolate" Pakistan at all international forums. The meeting was organised in the wake of the Uri attacks by jihadi militants. The meeting was attended by top ministers and concerned officials.

An urgent meeting was called after four terrorists entered the Indian military base on Sunday morning and opened fire in the camp with AK-47s and threw grenades, killing the soldiers sleeping in the tents. The attack killed 18 soldiers and more than 20 were critically injured. According to the inputs received from Indian intelligence agencies, the attack was carried out by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), which was also behind the Pathankot attack in January earlier this year.

It was also decided in the meetings that India will submit all the actionable evidence required by international bodies to bring Pakistan to the book for the Uri attacks.

"Evidence of Pakistan's hand in Uri attack i.e, GPS tracker movements that go back to starting point in Pakistan, Pashto literature, Pakistan army-marked arms to be given to Pakistan at DGMO level," ANI sources reported.

The meeting was attended by senior ministers, including Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag, and other concerned officials.

The prime minister was briefed about the terror attack at the Brigade Headquarter in Uri and on the current ground situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

India has held Pakistan directly accountable for one of the deadliest attacks on the Indian military. "Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified and isolated as such," Rajnath Singh said, blaming Pakistan for the attack.
