Washington, Nov.3 (ANI): The United States is in the process of setting up a very successful visit to India by President Barack Obama.
Briefing media persons at the State Department on Tuesday, spokesman Philip Crowley said: As you know, in preparation for presidential travel, the State Department does a lot of the spadework in building that agenda and helping the President set appropriate goals for the travel."
"So, over the past year and a half, the Secretary (Hillary Clinton) has traveled to India. Under Secretary Bill Burns, Under Secretary Bob Hormats, Assistant Secretary Bob Blake - and I'm probably leaving somebody out - all and others across the government have made a number of trips to India to set the stage for what we hope to be and expect to be a very successful trip by the President," Crowley added.
He also said that a very active Indian American Diaspora has helped the relationship between the two countries.
"We did take the opportunity to inform Indian Americans about our goals for the upcoming trip. That's the origins of the meeting late last week," Crowley added. (ANI)
