New Delhi: US Secretary of State John Kerry earlier this week called up External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and conveyed his condolences for those killed in the Uri terror attack and "offered full cooperation", sources said on Thursday.

Kerry called up Sushma Swaraj on September 27 in New York and welcomed her to the US as she had gone there to address the UN General Assembly. 

Kerry "conveyed his condolences on the Uri terrorist attack, offered full cooperation, and complimented India for its decision to ratify the Paris Climate Change Agreement," according to sources.

The September 18 terror attack on an Indian Army camp in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir left 18 Indian soldiers dead. The attack has led to a marked downslide in bilateral relations.
