Prime Minister Singh's State Visit:
Strengthening the US-India Strategic Partnership
Robert O. Blake
Assistant Secretary, South and Central Asian Affairs, U.S. Dept. of State
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's arrival in Washington on November 24th will mark the first official state visit by a foreign leader since the Obama inauguration. The President has also announced his intention to travel to India during 2010. This exchange of visits is especially significant as American foreign policy is preoccupied elsewhere'Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. It also points to the importance that both India and the U.S. attach to their strategic partnership, one of the most critical bilateral relations. What key items are likely to be on their agenda? What are the prospects for further progress in relations between New Delhi and Washington? What will be the points of divergence and accord? Please join us for a breakfast meeting with Ambassador Robert O. Blake, Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs to discuss these and other pertinent issues.
