Obama, Manmohan meeting to focus on economic issues: US

The meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Barack Obama at the White House later this month would primarily focus on economic issues, a senior US administration official has said.

‘I think this will be a visit that is very focussed on economic issues, what the US and India can do together to generate economic growth,’ the official said on Saturday, at a media briefing.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to visit Washington for a day on 27 September for a meeting with Obama at the White House and the logistics are still being worked out.

Last month, National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon during a visit to Washington had exuded confidence of a successful visit by the Prime Minister.

The US said the Obama-Singh meeting ‘will highlight India’s role in regional security and stability and provide an opportunity’ for the two leaders to chart a course toward enhanced trade, investment, and development cooperation between the two countries.
