Singh said that if Pakistan doesn’t allow NIA to visit their country for investigating Pathankot attack that would amount to betrayal. 

In interviews to news channels, he added:


“It was mutually agreed informally by the two countries that once Pakistan’s Joint Intelligence Team would visit India, an NIA team would be allowed. We are waiting for response from Pakistan. I will not have any hesitation in saying that if our NIA team does not get permission to visit Pakistan then it will be betrayal.”

On question of retaliation against the neighbour country for incidents like Pathankot attack, Singh said if anyone dares threaten India, the entire country would want a response.

He told Indian Express,”If India’s prestige is hurt in any way, if anyone dares threaten India, not only our support base but the entire country would want a response. But our government would also take the maximum steps called for only in accordance with domestic and international laws.”
