Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 18 – Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs Prak Sokhonn expressed the deepest condolences to Indian Minister of External Affairs H.E Sushma Swaraj on the loss of many security officers in a suicide bomb attack in Pulwama, Jammu, and Kashmir on 14 February 2019, according to the ministry of foreign affairs letter dated Monday.

“Cambodia strongly condemns this terrorist attack and stands in solidarity with India at this moment of profound grief,” the ministry wrote in the letter.

“Cambodia is firmly committed to contributing to fight against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” the letter added.

The Pulwama terror attack occurred on February 14, 2019 when a 78-vehicle convoy was escorting over 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans from Jammu to Srinagar. At around 3:30 pm, a Mahindra Scorpio SUV, packed with 350 kilograms of explosives rammed into one of the buses belonging to the convoy on the National Highway 44 at Lethipora near Avantipora town, according to India Today.
