There has been a “meeting of mind” between India and Switzerland on the issue of black money and tax evasion, a top Indian official today, a day after it assured India of stepped up cooperation over the issue.

“Clearly there was a meeting of mind on the issue of black money and tax evasion,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Vikas Swarup told reporters here, a day after the Prime Minister’s visit to Switzerland.

“As (Swiss) President (Johann) Schneider-Ammann said Switzerland is not a country that supports these practices. Switzerland is a country which wants to be part of the international mainstream on these matters. And of course there would be further co-operation between India and Switzerland,” Swarup said.
