UK foreign secretary James Cleverly has said the UK will review security at the Indian High Commission in London, as tensions remain high following a security breach at New Delhi’s diplomatic mission.
India blamed UK security forces for failing in their duty to protect diplomatic missions after separatist sympathisers vandalised its London mission last weekend.
Security barricades have since been removed from outside British diplomatic buildings in New Delhi, according to widely published pictures and one witness. It is not clear why they were removed.
on Wednesday evening sentenced what he described as “acts of violence” towards staff at the Indian High Commission in London. “We will always take the security of the High Commission, and all foreign missions in the UK, extremely seriously, and prevent and robustly respond to incidents such as this,” he said in a statement.
