War on terror: U.S. seeks India's help

Special Correspondent

Mulford meets Buddhadeb, discusses economic issues

KOLKATA: The United States hopes to receive India's co-operation in its war against terrorism around the world.

Condemning those behind the recent series of explosions across Bangladesh, U.S. Ambassador David C. Mulford said here on Thursday that ``such type of activities was regrettable and unacceptable, irrespective of where they take place - whether in New York city or Bangladesh."

``The U.S. is at war with global terrorism. We spend a lot of time and money for this and hope to receive assistance from other countries, including India," he said. Dr. Mulford, who met West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, said the two discussed ``economic issues and U.S. investment in the State in a broad perspective." Agriculture development, technological assistance and health were also discussed.

The West Bengal Government, he said, seemed keen to invite foreign and domestic investment and the Chief Minister indicated that differences in ideology on certain economic issues with the Centre did not come in the way of practical compulsions. Dr. Mulford said West Bengal ranked third according to the latest Economic Survey of the Government in terms of net State Domestic Product.
