US Promises to Fight alongside India against Terrorism

NEW DELHI – US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday that his country would fight against terrorism alongside the Indian government and not tolerate terrorist safe havens, in a reference to accusations leveled by India against Pakistan.

Tillerson held a press conference in New Delhi after meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj.

“In the fight against terrorism, the United States will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with India,” Tillerson said.

The Secretary of State, who arrived in the Indian capital on Tuesday night after visiting Islamabad the same day and Kabul a day earlier, also highlighted India’s important role in the fight against terrorism and in bringing peace and stability to the greater South Asia region.

“We acknowledge with gratitude India’s generous contributions to development in Afghanistan, including the construction of the Salma Dam and the Afghanistan parliament building,” Tillerson added.

In August, US President Donald Trump had announced a new strategy for Afghanistan, which included an increase in US troops deployed there, and said there was no timetable for the withdrawal of troops from the country.

Swaraj said that India was committed to a safe Afghanistan and added that Pakistan “should take immediate steps to dismantle safe havens” for terror groups, which, according to India, often use the country as a launching pad to conduct attacks on neighboring nations.
