Indian MPs meet Hillary


Washington, DC: A delegation of Indian lawmakers have asked United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to press Pakistan to bring Mumbai terror attack accused like Hafiz Saeed and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi to book and ensure that Islamabad does not divert the US aid for anti-India activities.

The delegation led by Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi met Clinton in Washington and also expressed concern over the proposed China-Pakistan nuclear deal.

Singhvi is leading a group of all-party MPs to attend the fourth India-Yale Parliamentary Leadership Program organized annually by the Yale University and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

He said the response of American officials to India’s concerns has been “understanding, sympathetic, and absorbent”.

When asked about American concerns, if any, Singhvi said the US’ concerns are mainly centered on larger security architecture for the whole of South Asia.
