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.
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.
