India and Nepal on Monday decided to intensify cooperation in sharing terror-related information on a real-time basis and check circulation of fake Indian currency notes.
The decisions were taken at the two-day home secretary-level talks began on Monday. The Indian delegation was led by home secretary RK Singh and the delegation from Nepal was led by his counterpart Sushil Jung Rana.
Singh will travel to Myanmar on Tuesday soon after wrapping up the talks with Nepal to hold talks with his counterparts aimed at persuading Myanmar to act against Indian insurgents holed up across the porous border.
A joint strategy to deal with Northeast insurgent groups, checking of drug smuggling, arms and ammunition will be high on the agenda during Singh’s meeting on January 19 in Myanmar capital, Naypyitaw.
At the meeting with Nepal on Monday, the two sides decided to raise the level of counter-terror cooperation and decided that the two home secretaries could directly take up terror-related issues on a real-time basis.
