NSA to visit India next week
The top American official and Indian leaders will "review recent developments" in the US-India partnership, and "discuss ways to advance key elements of the relationship, including both countries` participation in the upcoming East Asia Summit," in Indonesia in mid-November, the White House said.
The visit "underscores this administration`s commitment to growing US leadership in Asia, and our work with emerging powers, such as China and India, as a core component of this commitment," the statement said.
On the visit to China, the statement said "National Security Advisor Thomas E Donilon will travel on Friday to Beijing, China for meetings with Chinese leaders and policymakers, including Vice Premier Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo."
In Beijing he will "discuss a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues of mutual concern". The US official`s visit to China comes as a row has erupted between the two economic giants over Washington`s charges of Beijing manipulating the yuan to make Chinese exports cheaper.
