India, USA to sign key pacts

India and the USA are expected to ink at least seven agreements in defence, trade, climate change, education, clean energy, market access and hi-tech exports during President Barack Obama's visit to India early next month. Highly placed sources said the two sides were in constant touch finalising the pacts to be signed after talks between President Obama and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on November 8. It is learnt that trade-related issues and defence cooperation would top the agenda of the two countries during bilateral talks. Some of the key US officials are expected to remain in Delhi for a few more days after Obama leaves India to carry forward negotiations on the understandings reached between the American leader and the Indian Prime Minister. Indications are that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not be coming to India along with the President since she will be in Australia for the annual Australia-US ministerial consultations.
