'Clinton set the pace for Indo-US relationship'

Hillary Clinton"Now that we (India and US) have broadened the frame and significantly increased the number of issues that the two countries will address together, now comes the hard work of preparing for these meetings and deepening the cooperation," Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P J Crowley said.

"We have to see what progress can be made in all of the working groups that she (Clinton) outlined with her Indian counterpart," he said.

Crowley said Clinton reflected in a number of occasions that the US was "very satisfied" with the trip to India and the launching of a strategic dialogue and an expansion of the range of issues that "we will address in future meetings with both countries."

The Secretary of State visited India early this week during which the two countries vowed to expand their relationship.

"The strategic dialogue will be carried on primarily at the ministerial level," Crowley said, adding that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would be coming on a state visit to the US in November.
