Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh will meet US President Barack Obama in Washington on Friday, September 27. On the agenda are various things like the civilian nuclear deal, the US Immigration bill and more measures to improve trade relations between the two  countries.


However, the recent terror attacks in Jammm and Kashmir is likely to take centre stage, feels CNN-IBN's Suhasini Haidar.


Although terror attack would be on the agenda, but the PM would also talk about his second wave of reforms.


There are few issues related to bilateral trade; both sides saying that they want to take bilateral trade from USD 100 billion to more than USD 500 billion. So, how are they going to do that?


India from its part wants more infrastructural investment from the US; however the US wants to see those reforms working before going any further

India is also going to bring up those concerns over the immigration policy, as well as the Visa restrictions.


So, even as the two of them discuss the Civil Nuclear Deal with the US wanting more than 6600 megawatts in the Gujarat plant - that has just been signed for pre-early works agreement between Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) and Westinghouse. They also want more of India's nuclear energy power and want to see India buy more in terms of defence.


Right now India's procurement from the US is about USD 8 million and the US would like to see that grow as well.

All these issues will come up in the delegation level talks.
