India-US Deepen Ties Over Terrorism, Security and Illicit Financing



In the wake of increasing terrorism threats and cross-border security issues in India, the security establishments of the United States and its Indian counterpart have decided to further enhance co-operation on some key issues including illicit finance and smuggling of cash, financial fraud and duplication, cyber information, global supply chain, transportation, port, border and maritime security.

During a recent meeting of the Indo-US Homeland Security, top security officials from India and the US finalised a draft plan to address some of these key issues. As part of the Indo-US Homeland Security dialogue, six key sub-groups have been drafted for co-operation between security agencies of the two countries. These groups are related to illicit finance, illegal smuggling of cash, financial fraud and duplication which are used by insurgent groups.

Sub-groups have also been formed to deal with other important security aspects like cyber information and technology, megacity policing and sharing of information among federal state and local partners, global supply chain, transportation, port, border and maritime security, capacity building as well as technology upgradation.

According to the sources, in the recent meeting of the Indo-US Homeland Security, other aspects related to intelligence sharing and a joint plan to deal with an increased threat of terror in the sub-continent were also discussed. While the Indian side was led by additional secretary in the home ministry Rajni Sekhri Sibal, the US delegation was headed by deputy undersecretary in the Department of Homeland Security, James McCament.

“It was decided to work out the modalities and prepare the final plan on these groups by having regular dialogues between security establishments of the countries,’’ said an official.
