An excellent opportunity to return a favor( an Indian air force Helicopter was returned last year unharmed) for India. The combined rescue operations can open way for the next disaster recoveries and initiate a quick and speedy recoveries by mutual understanding. As for as security aspect is concerned Google has taken care of it, now if you go on Google you can go in the valley of Gayari and can see the camp and surrounding mountains real time.
