PM, Clinton to discuss strategic dialogue, South Asia

The State Department spokesman, Ian Kelly said Hillary would discuss a range of bilateral, regional and global issues during a meeting with the Prime Minister.

"I think that regional issues will be very important, particularly since the Secretary has just come back from Afghanistan, so they will want to talk about issues related to South Asia," Kelly said.

"She will want to talk about the State Department's role in Strategic Dialogue with India, so we will want to get into more detail on how we carry through with that. And a whole range of diplomatic issues," he said in response to a question.

The Prime Minister arrives in Washington on Sunday on a five-day visit as the First State Guest of the US President, Barack Obama.

The State Dinner is scheduled for Tuesday evening; soon after his ceremonial welcome at the White House and the first meeting between the two leaders; followed by a press conference.
