New Delhi: Condemning the Pathankot terror attack, BJP on Saturday reacted guardedly to its possible impact on the Indo-Pak talks, saying a right decision will be taken at the right time.

The party also congratulated the security forces for "foiling" the terror attack on the air base and said India was capable of giving a befitting reply to such attacks.

"BJP condemns it. Our brave soldiers have foiled the terror attack on the air base. We congratulate our armed forces that they were able to thwart it with their wisdom and valour. India is capable of giving a befitting reply to any terror attack," party's secretary and media department head Shrikant Sharma said.

On the possible impact of the terror strike on the Indo-Pak talks, which received a fillip after Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise visit to Lahore and met his Pakistani counterpart Nazaz Sharif, he said, "Right decision will be at the right time."

BJP pays its tributes to the soldiers killed in the attack, Sharma said.

Suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists from Pakistan today struck at an Air Force base in Pathankot in Punjab, killing three security personnel while four of the attackers were killed in an operation that lasted more than five hours.
