Menon, Clinton discuss 26/11

Washington, March 10
Counter-terrorism, including Mumbai terror strikes and Afghanistan, and the Sri Lankan conflict figured prominently during the talks that Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon had with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton here today.

Menon, who is on a four-day visit to the US, met Clinton at the State Department and discussed with her key bilateral and regional issues, including the current situation in Afghanistan. The Obama administration considers India as a key regional player in restoring lasting peace in Afghanistan.

“The meeting lasted for about half an hour. Among key issues discussed at the meeting included Sri Lanka, non-proliferation, counter-terrorism including Mumbai and Afghanistan,” a State Department official told the media. However, Indian diplomats were not available for comments.

The official said news reports about the US army carrying out civilian rescue operation in Sri Lanka did not figure during the talks between Menon and Clinton. He said the ongoing conflict between the Sri Lankan army and the LTTE and the current humanitarian situation there were discussed during the meeting. — PTI
