Bangalore: Terrorism would figure in talks with
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is visiting India
from July 19 for the second Indo-US strategic dialogue in New
Delhi, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said on Saturday.
"Terror is something which is always worrying not only for
India but also for (the) United States. It will naturally (be)
part of the discussions," he told reporters here.

Asked if "Pakistan situation" would come up for
discussions, Krishna said: "We will certainly review regional
situations," adding, bilateral and global situation would also
be reviewed.

On the dialogue, he said it`s a joint committee meeting
where there are a number of "items" (for discussions) and
generally it looks into the bilateral relationship. "We review
it and wherever there is need for update, we will do it."
Krishna said India and the US hold such meetings
alternately in Washington and New Delhi. Last year, he went to
the US capital, Clinton is "reciprocating" now.

"I am looking forward to the visit. It`s going to be a
fairly important visit on our calendar," he said.

Hillary would be leading a high-powered US delegation,
comprising officials from various departments, with focus on
giving a new thrust to the relationship between the two
countries.
