New Delhi: US National Security Adviser
James Jones today met Home Minister P Chidambaram and is
understood to have discussed issues relating to anti-terror
cooperation between India and America.

During the 20-minute meeting with Chidambaram, Jones is
believed to have discussed the ways of enhancing cooperation
between India and the US while dealing with terrorism.

Issues like activities of Pakistan-based terror outfits,
Islamabad`s action against them and arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba
operative David Headley are understood to have figured in the
meeting between the two leaders, sources said.

Jones had already called on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
and his Indian counterpart Shivshankar Menon during his
two-day visit.

The two countries recently held their first Strategic
Dialogue.

In the run-up to US President Barack Obama`s visit in
November, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Under
Secretary of State for Political Affairs William Burns are
also expected to travel here over the next three months.
