New Delhi — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has promised to give full U.S. support to Indian efforts to protect itself from terror attacks.
Her pledge Tuesday comes less than a week after a triple bombing killed 19 people in the financial capital of Mumbai.
The fight against terror, India's concerns over nuclear-armed rival Pakistan and U.S. withdrawal plans for Afghanistan are expected to dominate talks throughout the day between Clinton and Indian officials in New Delhi.
At the start of a meeting with India's foreign minister, Clinton said: "We are allies in the fight against violent extremist networks. And homeland security is a high priority and a source of increasing partnership."
