India's latest plan to arrest Dawood Ibrahim
New Delhi : In a 2+2 dialogue, India and the United States have decided to jointly vanish terrorism from the planet. In a major development, the United States has accepted to support India in arresting Dawood Ibrahim.
On Thursday, the United States agreed to lend its support to India in its fight against terrorist outfits prevailing in the neighbouring nation Pakistan. In the list of terror outfits, Dawood Ibrahim's D Company's name is also mentioned.
The decision gets more weightage with the fact that Dawood Ibrahim has a lot of properties in the United States as well.
Addressing the media after the talks, Swaraj and Sitharaman said the two sides have concluded the COMCASA pact, taking their already close strategic and defence ties to an advanced level.
"Defence came out as the single-most important aspect of our discussions today," Sitharaman said.
"We are also putting in place an enabling framework for closer cooperation between our defence forces. The signing of COMCASA today will enable India to access advanced technologies from the US and enhance India's defence preparedness."
Secretary Mattis described the inaugural 2+2 dialogue "productive and forward thinking" to boost "our bilateral relationship and our shared future".
