New Delhi, India (BBN) – US Under Secretary of State William Burns will pay a four-day official visit in India from June 10 aiming to strengthen bilateral relations between the United Stats and India.
Burns will meet with senior government officials and private sector leaders to discuss a broad agenda to further boost partnership between the U.S. and India, a US embassy press statement said in the capital, New Delhi.
The visit comes ahead of the scheduled tour of India by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the third week of July this year.
India would point out to Burns that Pakistan was not doing enough to dismantle terror infrastructure which affects India, local media reported quoting sources.
New Delhi feels that Pakistan’s war against Taliban has left untouched groups directly hurting India like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed and this will be conveyed during the visits of both Burns and Clinton, according to reports.
