'Obama to visit India'

WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama is “most likely” to visit India, which he considers an “indispensable” partner of the US, later this year, a top official has said. India is on top of the agenda of the Obama Administration, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Robert Blake, said. “President Obama has further underscored the importance of India to the United States by promising to make a reciprocal visit to India, most likely later this year,” Blake said addressing the Chicago Council on Global Affairs on Friday. However, he did not announce any dates for the visit.
