PM meets President post Assam violence

india Updated: Jan 06, 2007 19:59 IST

In the backdrop of stepped up violence in Assam by ULFA militants, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday met President APJ Abdul Kalam.

The 25-minute meeting at Rashtrapati Bhavan was described as "part of regular interaction between the two leaders".

They discussed issues of "national and international importance", a Rashtrapati Bhavan spokesman said without elaborating.

Singh's meeting came close on the heels of his strong condemnation of the ULFA killings which he termed as "anti-people act of cowardice and inhumanity".

Prime Minister also briefed the President on his forthcoming visit to the Philippines where he will attend the India-ASEAN Summit and the India-East Asia Summit.

Singh will leave on January 13 for Cebu for the twin summits.
