Chidambaram says India lives in a 'troubled neighbourhood'

New Delhi, Feb 1 (ANI): Addressing the Chief Ministers Conference here today, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said that India lived in a troubled neighborhood which made the country face terror and inflow of refugees.

"Some obvious consequences are cross border terrorism, covert support to insurgents, arms smuggling, Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN), inflow of refugees, and immigration.

We have to deal with each one of them within the constraints of our obligations under international law and domestic law and in consonance with our open and democratic system," he added.

The Home Minister further said that while the people of India are the final judges, he has happy to report that the internal security situation has vastly improved during the last two years.

"This is due, in a large measure, to the cooperation that we have received from the State Governments and the congruence in the views of the Central Government and the State Governments," he added.

He thanked the Chief Ministers for their understanding and support.

"I look forward to your valuable advice as well as your continued cooperation," he said. (ANI)
