NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A solution to security concerns on BlackBerry has to come from Research in Motion, a top Bharti Airtel executive said on Friday, adding that operators like itself can only co-ordinate efforts.

Sanjay Kapoor, the mobile operator's chief executive for India and South Asia, also said he expects a reasonable solution to the standoff between India and the BlackBerry maker.
