National Security Adviser Ajit Doval has called on his US counterpart Susan Rice at the White House during which the two officials discussed bilateral and regional issues in addition to reviewing the counterterrorism cooperation between the two countries.

Doval is in the US to attend the Nuclear Security Summit this week which is being hosted by US President Barack Obama on 31 March and 1 April.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who would lead the Indian delegation, is scheduled to arrive in Washington on 31 March.

The two National Security Advisers are understood to have reviewed the progress made on the decisions taken by Obama and Modi during their meetings last year in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, and in Paris on the sidelines of the summit on climate change.
