US to help India in its fight against terror

T V Parasuram in Washington

The United States has assured India of its cooperation in New Delhi's fight against terrorism, even as President George W Bush urged Pakistan to take "decisive additional measures" against "extremists" blamed for violence against India.

In a telephone call from his ranch at Crawford in Texas on Saturday, Bush told Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee that the US is "determined to cooperate with India in its fight against terrorism", White House spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters.

In addition, Bush "reiterated his outrage" over the attack on Indian Parliament, calling it "a strike against democracy".

In a separate call, the US president urged Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to "take additional, strong, decisive measures to eliminate the extremists who seek to harm India, undermine Pakistan, provoke a war between India and Pakistan and destabilise the international coalition against terrorism", McClellan said.

The spokesman would not elaborate on what Bush meant by asking Musharraf to "eliminate" the extremists.
