Clinton's Departure Date for India Confirmed

Hillary Clinton will depart for India and a regional conference in Thailand July 17th, foreign policy site The Cable reports.

Before leaving Washington, she will deliver a major speech to the Council on Foreign Relations.

As I have reported on SkyNews.com and in studio, the US is pushing hard on relations with India mainly on trade and economy, as it sees the second fastest growing economy in the world as a lucrative market not least for civilian nuclear technology after a landmark agreement on the topic was signed with Prime Minister Singh in Washington last year.
