Obama to Visit India in 2010?

India Abroad, Posted: Aug 04, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. - On the heels of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's visit to India, the question has risen of when President Barack Obama might visit. Former U.S. Ambassador to India Frank Wisner, now part of a high-profile lobbying firm which represents the Indian government, says Obama will probably visit India in 2010, reports India Abroad. He said Clinton helped reestablish the image of the strategic relationship between the United States and India despite obstacles like climate change and the nuclear deal. Clinton has invited Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the United States in November. But diplomat M. K. Bhadrakumar wrote that it was significant that Clinton chose to first visit Mumbai, India's commercial capital (and site of terror attacks) rather than the real capital, New Delhi. He said the partnership between India and the United States during the Bush years, when the two countries held over 50 joint military exercises in five years, might be entering a different phase. Obama is more interested in issues like climate change and talks less about wanting to make India a world-class power. "The U.S.-India relationship is a bit like a marriage where one partner simply needs some space," quipped Bhadrakumar.
