US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be on a three-day visit to India from today.
This will be the first high-level engagement with the US after the General Elections in India. Mr Pompeo’s visit will be an important opportunity for both sides to explore ways to further strengthen the India-US Strategic Partnership.
It will also continue the high-level engagement on matters of mutual interest including bilateral, regional and global issues. The visit will deepen and broaden the bilateral relationship and kick-start a dialogue towards the resolution of some of the key issues in trade ties.
During the three days visit, Mr Pompeo will hold talks with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and call on other dignitaries in the government.
