Bangalore, Jul 9: Terrorism would figure in talks with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is visiting India from July 19 for the second Indo-US strategic dialogue in New Delhi, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said today (Jul 9).

"Terror is something which is always worrying not only for India but also for (the) United States. It will naturally (be) part of the discussions," he told reporters here.

Asked if "Pakistan situation" would come up for discussions, Krishna said: "We will certainly review regional situations," adding, bilateral and global situation would also be reviewed.

On the dialogue, he said it's a joint committee meeting where there are a number of "items" (for discussions) and generally it looks into the bilateral relationship. "We review it and wherever there is need for update, we will do it."

Krishna said India and the US hold such meetings alternately in Washington and New Delhi. Last year, he went to the US capital, Clinton is "reciprocating" now.

"I am looking forward to the visit. It's going to be a fairly important visit on our calendar," he said.

Hillary would be leading a high-powered US delegation, comprising officials from various departments, with focus on giving a new thrust to the relationship between the two countries.
