US reaffirms stand to co-operate with India against terrorism
The US State Department on Tuesday reaffirmed that the cooperation between the US and India in the fight against the scourge of terrorism is “extremely strong and robust”.
“They (India) understand this issue and our cooperation — law enforcement, counter-terrorism, countering violent extremism — is extremely strong and robust,” Elizabeth Trudeau, Director in the US State Department Press Office, said in the daily press briefing in Washington on Tuesday.
Trudeau, without referring to any particular case, said: “The US and India have a joint commitment to fighting against violent extremism — the kind that impacts the people of India or anywhere around the world”.
“India, unfortunately, has suffered at the hands of terrorists,” she said.
