India and the United States should share intelligence on terrorists to weed out the scourge, US President George W Bush said in New Delhi Thursday.
"There is a need for intelligence agencies (of India and the United States) to share information and weed out terrorism," he said addressing a joint press conference with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after over 100 minutes of talks with him on a wide range of issues.
"I will bring the same message to Musharraf (to share information between the intelligence agencies) to fight terrorism," Bush, who will visiting Pakistan on Saturday, said.
"My visit to Pakistan is very important as we (as nations) need to continue work together and combat terrorism," he said.
The visiting president said terrorism was not a problem in this side of the world only, "it is there is Middle East and could be defeated only by people through giving them (people) the hope that killers could be prosecuted".
Noting that India and United States have faced terror attacks on their soil, Bush said the resolve of the two countries is always to protect their people. They (terrorists) want terror go on but we cannot let that happen, Bush added.
