Modi wants deeper US-India security relationship

Washington—Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a closer security relationship between his country and the United States on Wednesday, in an address to the US Congress stressing the importance of the warm relationship between the two countries.The fight against terrorism has to be fought at many levels. And the traditional tools of military, intelligence or diplomacy alone would not be able to win this fight,” Modi told a rare joint meeting of the Senate and House of Representatives.
“We have both lost civilians and soldiers in combating it. The need of the hour is for us to deepen our security cooperation,” Modi said. Modi did not mention India’s neighbours Pakistan or China specifically, but said the deeper U.S.-Indian security cooperation should isolate anyone who harbours, supports or sponsors terrorists, and separate religion from terrorism.—Reuters
