India's New PM to Meet with Bush, Musharraf at UN (Ravi Khanna, 19 Sep 2004, VOA News)

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh meets this week in New York with President Bush and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

Indian officials say that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's meetings with President Bush and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf are significant.

They say his talks with President Bush will focus on high technology transfers to India. Just two days before their meeting Tuesday, Washington lifted restrictions on nuclear technology exports to India.

Indian strategic affairs analyst Professor Raja Mohan welcomes the move.

"It is a major achievement, both in terms of breaching the technology blockade, as well as the consolidation of the relationship with the United States," he said.
