BANGALORE, India, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- India's defense minister is calling on leaders in the private and government sectors to strengthen cooperation to prevent future terrorist attacks.

Indian Minister of Defense A.K. Antony, addressing an audience of defense authorities at the Aero-India 2009 aviation exhibit in Bangalore, said terrorist groups are evolving new and more dangerous techniques to attack targets. Antony said in order to counter terrorist threats and prevent a future attack, a calibrated response is needed, the Indian Ministry of Defense reported.

Antony called on international leaders to collectively develop and coordinate responses to terrorism. In addition, he called for a greater investment in research and development from the private sector to develop new technologies to support an international collaboration.

"The dynamics of security are changing continuously across the world," Antony said in a statement.

"The unconventional means of warfare used by the terrorists as seen in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the recent terror attacks on Mumbai demand a calibrated international response. Technology has to be backed up by a proactive response from the government and the civil society."
