Senior US diplomat Richard Holbrooke held regional security talks with Indian officials on Wednesday after visiting neighbouring Pakistan and Afghanistan to discuss new anti-terrorism strategies. Holbrooke, the US envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with India's Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon in New Delhi. India has expressed concern that President Barack Obama's new strategy to fight Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants in the region will pump further military and financial aid into its troubled arch-rival Pakistan. The US has promised a 7.5 billion dollar aid package for Pakistan in return for greater efforts fighting extremist safe havens within its borders. India has labelled Pakistan the "epicentre of terrorism" and accused it of sheltering Islamist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba. New Delhi said the long-standing peace process between the two countries would be put on hold unless Islamabad reined in militants and dismantled radical Islamist groups. Holbrooke, who will hold a press conference later Wednesday, told reporters in Islamabad that the US had no plans to negotiate between India and Pakistan.
