An international seminar on terrorism beginning in New Delhi on Monday will provide an opportunity to India to interact with over a dozen countries, including Pakistan and Bangladesh, on issues related to the menace as well as militancy.
The two-day deliberations, to be inaugurated by Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil, will include presentations on terrorism in South Asia and its neighbourhood and on extremism and insurgency in South East Asia.
A panel discussion on the Indian experience in counter-terrorism policing will be held on the second day of the meet.
National Security Adviser (NSA) M K Narayanan will deliver the keynote address at the seminar organised by the Asia-Pacific chapter of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). India presently chairs the Asia Pacific World Regional Office of the IACP.
Apart from the IACP president Ronald C Ruecker, the meet will be attended by foreign delegates from 13 countries in the Asia Pacific region, an official release said.
IACP is the world's largest organisation of police officials with a membership of around 20,000 spread across over 90 countries.
