New Delhi: In what could be his last official visit to the United States, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday left for Washington — for the third summit since 2009 with President Barack Obama-during which he is scheduled to look for ways and means to expand and deepen relations between the two countries in host of areas.

Singh will also travel to New York to attend the UN General Assembly (UNGA) and hold talks with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif.
In a statement issued this morning in New Delhi before embarking on his visit to the US, Singh said he was “looking forward” to meeting Sharif in New York, ending days of speculation over whether they would meet in the American city where both will attend the UN General Assembly.
Singh PM is expected to convey concerns over “barbaric” incidents on the LoC and continued terrorism emanating from Pakistan. At the meeting on September 29, the Indian side will see what the new Pakistan Prime Minister, who has made “some nice statements” about the relationship, has to offer to address its concerns over ceasefire violations on the Line of Control and International Border, continued terrorism and inaction against the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai attack.
