Observing that terrorism is a global phenomenon that can strike any country, India and Israel have pledging to cooperate in the fight against the growing menace.

"The two sides discussed terrorist threats in the regional and global contexts as well as national counter-terrorism measures, combating terrorist financing, transfer of weapons to terrorists, menace of narco-trafficking and cooperation at multilateral fora," a statement from the Israeli foreign ministry said, referring to the meeting of the joint working group on counter-terrorism.

The Israeli delegation at the meeting was led by Miriam Ziv, deputy director general, strategic division at the ministry of foreign affairs, while the Indian side was headed by K C Singh, additional secretary (International Organisations) at the MEA.

The meeting held in New Delhi on Tuesday was the sixth since the inception of JWG. It was preceded by the third round of dialogue on disarmament and non-proliferation on Monday.

"The two sides had an extensive exchange of views on different issues related to disarmament and non-proliferation," the statement said, adding, "The dialogue was productive and useful. It provided an opportunity to underline the commitment to non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the means of their delivery."
