Ambassador Rao also recalled the meeting between Prime Minister Singh and Ms. Pelosi during the Prime Minister’s state visit to the US in November 2009.
The discussion also touched upon the regional situation in South Asia. Minority Leader Pelosi welcomed India’s positive contribution to Afghanistan’s reconstruction and viewed the US-India partnership as having an important role to play in ensuring Afghanistan’s peace and prosperity.
