India a great and emerging global power, believes U.S.
Washington: Ahead of Indo-U.S. Strategic Dialogue, an Obama Administration official today termed India as a "great and emerging global power" and said the talks, next week, will take the relationship between the two nations to a new level.

"I think the strategic dialogue speaks for itself.

India is a great and emerging global power. Our range of interests are significant in terms of the environment, in terms of regional security, in terms of counterterrorism, economic issues," State Department spokesman P J Crowley told reporters here.

Leading a high-power delegation of several Cabinet Ministers, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna is scheduled to arrive in Washington in the next couple of days for the first Indo-US Strategic Dialogue from June 1 to June 4.
