Washington: India and the United States are working together on countering their shared threats on terrorism and cyber crime, said Secretary of State John Kerry after meeting India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Wednesday at the U.S. State Department here.
A statement issued on behalf of Kerry said, “We (India and the U.S.) share many concerns; concerns about terrorism, cyber space and others. We are working together and we do hope that together we could make this (earth) a better place to live, and meet with these challenges together, and in cooperation with all other like-minded countries.”
Referring to the forthcoming Fourth Nuclear Security Summit, Kerry said, “It’s a very very important summit. We attach considerable value to it. Prime Minister Modi would be here. He is deeply interested in ensuring the safety of radioactive material.”
Kerry also welcomed the progress in the bilateral relationship between India and the United States.
He said, “We have made many strides after the news government under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi has come. We have taken our (India-US) relationship to new heights. There have been many areas where we have been able to achieve substantial results. We hope that this cooperation will get new strength and new heights and will be further deepened.” (ANI)
