Washington: Appreciating the “responsible” role played by Indian government in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks, top US officials have told a group of Indian CEOs that Washington recongnises Pakistan as “hot bed of terrorism which needs to be controlled”.

“They appreciated that India has been very responsible in its behavior. The good news is that they (officials of the Obama administration) recognise that Pakistan is the hot bed of terrorism, which needs to be controlled and contained,” Bharti Enterprises Chairman Sunil Mittal, who is heading a CII delegation here, told PTI.
“I think they are willing to engage with India to build a partnership to ensure that the whole region becomes safer,” Mittal said.
Mittal led a group of Indian CEOs to meet top officials of the Obama administration yesterday, wherein they expressed concerns over the prevailing situation in the subcontinent, specially terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
“We expressed concern with the problems we are facing in the Indian subcontinent outside India, in particular the Pakistan and Afghanistan situation on one hand, the continuous Sri Lanka stress, the Bangladesh mutiny, Myanmar issues and Maoist resurgence in Nepal,” Mittal said.
