Anti-terror law matter for people and govt of India: US

The United States has said India's move to bring in a new anti-terror law in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks was a "matter for the people and the government" of the country.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack was asked during a media briefing here whether the Secretary of State has had any discussions about the new law.

"No..., the laws of India are a matter for the Indian people and the Indian government to decide upon," he replied.

The spokesman also refused to comment when asked if Washington believed there was anything new in the latest arrests made in Pakistan, given that militant organisations have earlier been banned in the country, only to return under a new name.

"I've spent a lot of words and a lot of time talking about this. I really don't have much to add beyond what I've already said," McCormack said.
