The inaugural U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue occurs in Washington, DC June 1-4. On June 3, Secretary Clinton and Indian Minister of External Affairs Sri S.M. Krishna co-chair high-level interagency discussions at the State Department.
Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Robert O. Blake previewed the meeting. He said, "President Obama has called India an indispensable partner…one of the defining partnerships for the United States in the 21st century. India matters to the United States because it's the world's largest democracy. It has the world's second fastest growing economy…[and] it is an increasingly important partner for the United States in addressing common global concerns."
