Washington, March 11 (IANS) US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be going to India at some point, but it’s not clear whether the visit would be before or after the Indian general election next month.
“At some point Clinton will be going to India, but there isn’t any plan at this moment of her travel,” State Department spokesman Robert Wood said Tuesday briefing reporters about Clinton’s meeting Monday with visiting Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon.
Asked whether the visit would be before the Indian elections next month, Wood said: “Well, I don’t know. I don’t want to rule anything out, but there was no discussion of a particular timetable for a visit.”
Nor was he “aware of, not at this point” if Clinton was planning a visit to the India, Pakistan or Afghanistan region.
