US forces chief to visit India

New Delhi, July 21 (PTI): India’s defence cooperation with the US is expected to get a boost when a high-level American delegation led by chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, General Richard B. Myers, arrives here in the next two weeks.

Official sources indicated that, despite India’s refusal to send troops to Iraq, Washington was keen to engage Delhi in intensive consultations and had also proposed advancing the annual Defence Policy Group (DPG) meeting between the two countries to the first week of August.

“The US has proposed August 4 to 6 as dates for the DPG and indicated that the venue of the meeting might be changed from New Delhi to Washington,” an official said.
