EVERYONNE WANTS INTO THE AXIS OF GOOD:

US Studying Anti-Terrorism Plan By Bangladesh (Javno, 2/06/09)

The United States said on Saturday it was awaiting a response from other South Asian countries to a proposal by Bangladesh to form a regional task force to fight terrorism.

The proposal was made by Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina before the Dec. 29 national election, which was won by her Awami League party.

"We are awaiting response from other countries in the region over the (task force) proposal," U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher told reporters.

Hasina proposed the idea after militant attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai in November, in which 179 people were killed.

"It is an interesting and good idea," Boucher said after meeting Bangladesh Home Minister Shahera Khatun.
