Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller met Home Minister P Chidambaram and National Security Advisor MK Narayanan here on Tuesday.
Later, in a statement, Mueller said terrorism is not just a local issue. “It is not an issue for one country. It is an issue across the world. To be successful we all have to work together, share intelligence and utilize our various judicial systems to bring to justice those responsible for these (Mumbai terror strikes and the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan) attacks.”
“We will continue to work with our counterparts here and around the world to make sure that we not only that bring these people to justice but also that prevent further attacks,” he said.
Adding “I had extremely beneficial visits with the home minister, the national security advisor and other counterparts. The topic of our discussions was terrorism around the world, most particularly the Mumbai attacks.”
“We have seen unprecedented cooperation between our various agencies both during and after the Mumbai attacks and we are intent that those responsible are brought to justice,” he said. “Throughout the world, those of us in positions, such as I have in my agency, and others in similar agencies face the threat of terrorism,” Mueller said.
