hillaryThe visiting US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today assured that the US would do its best to support India’s efforts to end the terror attacks on its soil.

Addressing media persons in New Delhi after a half an hour meeting with her Indian counter part Mr SM Krishna on the second day of her visit to India, Hillary Clinton said that it would put more pressure on Pakistan to end its terror war. “We are trying to explore ways to protect our two countries from the scourge of terrorism,” she said.

She said she made it clear to Pakistan in the wake of the 2008 attacks on Mumbai that Pakistan must cooperate with India in bringing the culprits of Mumbai attacks to justice. Hillary Clinton said she discussed the July 13 Mumbai triple blasts also with Krishna and assured him full support in tackling terrorism in India.

Ms. Clinton was in India with a 25-member delegation for talks on strengthening bilateral cooperation and on Wednesday, she will travel to Chennai. The delegations of both India and the US later held detailed consultations on several bilateral issues.
