Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the terrorist attack on the Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri in the Kashmir region that killed 18 Indian soldiers:

"The pre-dawn terrorist attack on Indian troops while they slept was a cowardly act, one that deserves the strongest condemnation. I extend my condolences to the Indian government and to the families of the fallen. The United States and India share a vital interest in defending our democracies from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Both our nations must commit fully to deepening our security partnership so that radical jihadists are defeated and stability in the region is maintained."
