ATHENS (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hopes to cement gains in ties with emerging global power India when she flies to New Delhi on Monday ties while heading off new frictions with fragile U.S. ally Pakistan. Clinton's two-day trip to India, her second as secretary of state, follows President Barack Obama's visit last November and underscores Washington's growing bonds with the world's second most populous country and its $1.6 trillion (993.4 billion pounds) economy.
Clinton will meet Indian leaders for a U.S.-India "strategic dialogue" session, regular meetings designed to get officials from both sides working more closely together, and comes nearly a week after deadly triple bomb attack on India's financial hub of Mumbai.
She will then move on to Chennai, the eastern port city which has become a hub for U.S. trade and investment, including a major auto engine plant for Ford Motor Co..
Ms. Clinton is here to push American Business Interests rather than any other things of universal concern!
