India and the European Union have unveiled an action plan to fight terrorism, strengthen trade and boost technology.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and visiting British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced the plan at a joint news conference on Wednesday following a summit in New Delhi. Britain currently holds the rotating EU presidency. Mr. Singh also said the two sides agreed there is no place for terrorism in the civilized world, and that they will work closely together towards fighting it.
The British leader said the plan -- setting out areas of cooperation -- marks a significant change and a turning point in relations between Europe and the emerging economic power.
The two leaders are to hold another round of talks at the hill resort of Simla Thursday.
