NEW DELHI (ANI) – India and the United States on February 28 reviewed ongoing cooperation in counterterrorism and security domains in a day-long Homeland Security Dialogue, discussing steps to bolster bilateral efforts to combat terrorism and reaffirming their commitment to strengthen the vibrant people-to-people ties between the two countries by taking steps to enable safe and legal migration.

Ajay Bhalla, Home Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, and Kristie Canegallo, Acting Deputy Secretary, US Department of Homeland Security, led the respective delegations.

Safe and legal migration, human trafficking, money laundering, cybercrimes, and misuse of the cyber domain for illegal activities, including terror financing was discussed.

A Memorandum of Cooperation on law enforcement training between the U.S. Federal Law Enforcement Training Centre and the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy was signed.

The last homeland security dialogue took place in January 2022.
