Countering terrorism growing priority for India & US: EAM Sushma Swaraj

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said cross border terrorism directed at India is now recognised as a larger regional and global challenge and there has been growing convergence between New Delhi and Washington to counter it.

Addressing India-US forum in New Delhi yesterday Swaraj also underlined the need for respecting sovereignty and territorial integrity while carrying out connectivity projects, seen as a reference to China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative.

Referring to India’s deteriorating ties with Pakistan, Swaraj said the “Neighbourhood First” policy of the government has yielded results with all countries in the region barring one.
