Clinton to meet Thai PM, attend Asean talks
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel to India and Thailand from July 17 to 23 for talks with regional leaders on key issues, AFP quoted a spokesman as saying Tuesday.
Clinton, who leaves Washington on Thursday, will first arrive in Mumbai on Friday and plans to pay tribute to the victims of the November attacks on the port city.
“She will meet with a broad cross section of Indian society in Mumbai,” spokesman Ian Kelly said in a statement. Clinton will then travel to New Delhi from July 19 to 21, during which she will meet with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and with External Affairs Minister Krishna during her trip to India, Kelly added.
The secretary of state will later visit Thailand for talks with “Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and Foreign Minister Kasit Piromyato to underscore the importance of our alliance and our bilateral relationship,” Kelly added.
The US top diplomat will also lead the US delegation to Asean talks in Phuket, Thailand from July 22 to 23, returning home to Washington on July 23.
