Israel offers support to India to fight terrorism

September 09, 2003 13:52 IST

Pledging to fight global terrorism, Israel on Tuesday offered India both material and moral support in fighting the menace.

"We can train and teach and supply material we have developed in fighting terrorism. We have developed a very advanced technology...," Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Yosef Lapid told reporters after a meeting with All India Anti-Terrorist Front chairman M S Bitta.
Observing that India and Israel have common problems like terrorism, he said the two countries can help each other in fighting this new, global menace.

"In Israel we have a great deal of experience [in fighting terrorism]. So have you," he said, adding that a great deal of suffering has been caused by terrorism all across the world.

Lapid said the US has learnt a "very bitter lesson" and now it's time for Europe to be cautious.

Supporting the idea of opening an anti-terrorism training institute in India, Lapid said it is necessary to study the menace scientifically.

The visiting dignitary was presented a yellow turban, a sword and a memento after he took a pledge along with the
AIATF chairman to fight global terrorism and strive for peace and harmony.
