Washington, May 15 (IANS) A top US official in charge of South Asia has condemned the terror attack in Jaipur and said Washington needs to work with India, “the glowing light in the region” to fight terrorism. “It’s a sad reminder that even the glowing light in the region, a more stable country that’s developing, is still subject to these horrible types of attacks, and we need to work with the people of India as we express our sympathy,” Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Richard Boucher said Wednesday.

“There’s no justification for the murders of innocent people in that way, and we need to work with the Indians to try to help them prevent such attacks in the future,” he said, expressing “absolute condemnation” of the terrorist attacks at a House panel hearing.

The panel’s Democratic chairman Gary L. Ackerman had described India as “a giant sea of relative tranquillity surrounded by chaos and instability” at the hearing on ‘US Assistance to South Asia: Is There a Strategy To Go With All That Money?’
