WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is hosting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (MUHN'-moh-hahn sing) at the White House for talks on trade and security in a fragile region.
The meeting Friday offers the leaders of the world's two largest democracies a chance to inject new life into the partnership amid concerns that relations have stagnated.
Obama and Singh will firm up plans for moving forward on defense ties and a civil nuclear agreement. America's efforts to counter China's growing influence and the tenuous situation in Afghanistan will be strong undertones, even if the leaders don't address them explicitly in public.
The White House says economic cooperation and clean energy initiatives are also on the agenda. Singh may also press the president about immigration legislation in Congress and India's high-skilled workers.
