The Trump administration has praised India for its significant counter terrorism actions and said Pakistan-based militant groups continued their terror attacks in the country.
In its annual ‘Country Report on Terrorism’, as mandated by the Congress, the State Department said the Indian leadership expressed resolve to prevent terrorist attacks domestically and to bring to justice the perpetrators of terrorism, in cooperation with the US and other like-minded countries.
It said the parts of India seriously impacted by terrorism in 2017 included Jammu and Kashmir, the northeast Indian states, and parts of central India in which Maoists remain active.
The report said India continued to experience attacks, including by Pakistan-based terrorist organisations as well as tribal and Maoist insurgents. The report further said the Indian government closely monitored the domestic threat from transnational terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaida.
