New Delhi. Ms Ann Linde, Minister for EU Affairs and Trade, Sweden held delegation level talks with the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju here on May 18. During the meeting both the Ministers discussed various issues of importance to the two countries including the threat of ISIS and radicalisation and steps being taken for counter-terrorism etc.

Both the Ministers appreciated the ongoing cooperation in counter-terrorism, cyber security and anti-radicalism being pursued by the two countries and emphasised the need for close collaboration both at bilateral and multilateral levels to counter this very serious threat especially against pluralist democracies such as ours. Ms Linde observed that terrorism and threat of ISIS is a big issue for Europe and urgent steps are being taken to check the same.
