The National Security Advisor, Mr Shivshankar Menon, has discussed bilateral and regional issues, including the upcoming Strategic Dialogue in New Delhi, as he met the US Secretary of State, Ms Hillary Clinton, and his American counterpart, Mr Tom Donilon.

Mr Menon arrived in Washington to review the implementation of initiatives launched during the November visit of the US President, Mr Barack Obama, to India.

He also discussed the preparations for the upcoming Strategic Dialogue in New Delhi. In April, Ms Clinton would lead a high-powered US delegation to India.

The NSA first met the Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Mr William Burns. Thereafter, he met Ms Clinton at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department. Later in the day, Mr Menon met his American counterpart, Mr Tom Donilon, at the White House.

Mr Menon’s visit to the US has been at the invitation of Mr Donilon. The details of the meetings were not immediately available.

“Our US-India Strategic Dialogue is premised on our strong support for India’s role as an important actor on the international stage,” the US State Department spokesman, Mr P.J. Crowley, had said ahead of the meeting. He is scheduled to continue with his meetings today.
