She said counter-terrorism cooperation between the two sides has acquired a new qualitative edge and purpose.
 
Mrs Swaraj said, they underscored the International community’s scrutiny over the threat of terrorism emanating from Pakistan, which has affected India and the United States alike. On the issue of H1-B visa, Mrs Swaraj sought Secretary Pompeo’s support to nurture the people-to-people links.
 
In his statement, Mr Pompeo said, The US will continue to cooperate with India in different areas. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said, Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement, COMCASA, was signed between the two sides yesterday.

In a joint statement issued after the dialogue, the Ministers denounced any use of terrorist proxies in the region and called on Pakistan to ensure that the territory under its control is not used to launch terrorist attacks on other countries.
