India and US hope to iron out irritants before Obama visit

Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao's discussions in Washington will focus on firming up key deliverables during the Obama visit that should send a powerful message that the India-US global strategic partnership is set to keep its momentum under the new regime in Washington.

IMO: USA is short of money and this will be very much in their interests as well as India's.

Obviously, amongst a number of other factors, the easing of high-tech exports through removal of Indian companies from the US Entity List and a greater strategic understanding on the Afghanistan-Pakistan issues could be two important highlights of the visit.

India is also hoping for a clear-cut announcement by Obama pledging the US's support for India's candidature for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council.

IMO: This is perhaps the most important matter, and it will cost only words AFAIK.
