‘India, US working on counter-terrorism issues’

Washington: India and US are working on a
number of issues related to counter-terrorism, a top Obama
Administration official has said, adding there is a lot of
work left to be done.

"When we talk about finding that sweet spot between
security protection and commerce, India is a great example
where I think we can have an even more robust relationship
than we have right now," Secretary of Homeland Security Janet
Napolitano said.

Napolitano was speaking at the Council on Foreign
Relations (CFR), a Washington-based think-tank.

The US have sent teams there to work jointly on passenger
travel, on counter-terrorism, on countering violent extremism,
on police training, on all of those kinds of elements, cyber
security being another one, she said.

"I would venture to say that there`s a lot of work left to
be done. Part of it is because of the nature of India. It`s a
big, complicated country, a very different sort of
bureaucratic structure than we have," she said.

"But I think, as we saw with the attack on Mumbai and
other issues in India, they have key terrorism issues that we
can, I think, provide assistance on," Napolitano said.
