Clinton to visit Delhi
New Delhi, July 17: Indian leaders and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will discuss security and counterterrorism efforts when she visits in days, an Indian official said.
Cooperation on the economy, defense, environment, trade and other issues are also expected to be discussed, said Vishnu Prakash, the Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman.
After Wednesday’s Mumbai bombings, Clinton said she would not be deterred from visiting India.
“I believe it is more important than ever that we stand with India, deepen our partnership and reaffirm our commitment to the shared struggle against terrorism,” she said.
Clinton is scheduled to arrive in New Delhi on Monday and meet the next day with Prime Minister Manmohan.
