U.S. National Security Adviser James Jones on Thursday met Home Minister P. Chidambaram and is understood to have discussed issues relating to anti-terror cooperation between India and America.

During the 20-minute meeting with Mr. Chidambaram, Mr. Jones is believed to have discussed the ways of enhancing cooperation between India and the U.S. while dealing with terrorism.

Issues like activities of Pakistan-based terror outfits, Islamabad's action against them and arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Headley are understood to have figured in the meeting between the two leaders, sources said.

Mr. Jones had already called on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Indian counterpart Shivshankar Menon during his two-day visit.

The two countries recently held their first Strategic Dialogue.

In the run-up to U.S. President Barack Obama's visit in November, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs William Burns are also expected to travel here over the next three months.
