FactO check:
A reverse image search of the image  directed us to an article by Times Now with a title “India, Russia hold NSA-level talks in Delhi; discuss ‘peaceful settlement process, development in Afghanistan’”

Amid a developing political situation in Afghanistan, Russian Secretary of Security Council Nikolai Patrushev and India’s National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval held talks in New Delhi on Wednesday. The two sides reportedly reviewed the political, security and humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.Times Now reported.
The same is also reported by REPUBLIC WORLD, Hindustan Times, Business Standard.

News agency ANI has shared the video of the event in a tweet from their official twitter handle.

There is no mention of participation of Israel,America and England in the meeting from any of the above reports. We also searched for the meeting of the five intelligence agencies and found no reports of their recent meetings.

Conclusion:

The image used in the message is from the meeting of National Security Advisors of India and Russia. Israel, America and England intelligent agencies were not the part of the meeting. Therefore the viral message is misleading.
