New Delhi, Dec.3 (ANI): US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will arrive in New Delhi on Wednesday morning for an overnight visit.
She has been asked by President George W Bush to meet both Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee and discuss the fallout of the terror strikes in Mumbai, and will probably caution India not to take on an aggressive posture against Pakistan.
The Indian Government is expected to share with Rice details of the evidence it has gathered so far against Pakistan, including intercepts like records of satellite phones used by the terrorists.
Rice is also expected to visit Pakistan on Thursday in a bid to reduce tensions between the two countries in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
However, there was no official word on that visit as yet. (ANI)
