Condemning the recent attacks in Nairobi and Peshawar, Germany, on Friday, batted for strengthening cooperation with India and other like minded democracies to counter terrorism.
German Ambassador Michael RPT Michael Steiner said while it is encouraging that the democracies think alike when it comes to terrorism, there is a need for awareness and cooperation to effectively fight the menace.
"We all condemn the recent attacks. We all are on one line on the fight against terrorism. That links Germany and India. We need the awareness and cooperation," he told reporters.
