Indo-US Joint Statement
Mum on Kashmir, Pak

V S Chandrasekar in Washington

India and the US on Friday gave a significant new dimension to their bilateral ties by agreeing to establish a "new strategic framework dialogue" to cooperate in the nuclear field for civilian purposes.

This was contained in the Indo-US joint statement issued at the end of the first summit meeting between Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and President George W Bush in Washington.

But the document did not make any reference to either cross-border terrorism or the role played by Pakistan in fomenting violence in Kashmir.

The statement noted that terrorism threatened not only the security of India and the United States, but also the efforts to build freedom, democracy and international security and stability around the world.

Vajpayee and Bush remembered the victims of many nationalities in the September 11 terrorist attacks on the US and agreed that all appropriate steps should be taken to bring the perpetrators of the crime to justice.

The two leaders affirmed that the current campaign against Al-Qaida and the Taleban network in Afghanistan is an important step in a global war against terrorism and its sponsors everywhere in the world.

The two leaders agreed that success in this endeavour would depend heavily on building international co-operation and securing the unambiguous commitment of all nations to share information and intelligence on terrorists and deny them support, sustenance and safe havens.

They agreed to consult regularly on the future of Afghanistan, the statement said.
