Washington, Jun 12 : External Affairs Minister S M Krishna arrived here to hold the third India-US Strategic Dialogue with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during which the two leaders are expected to discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues including Afghanistan and Pakistan. 

Hours before Krishna arrived here on Monday afternoon by a Acela train from New York, Clinton set the tone for the talks by announcing that India has “significantly” reduced its dependence on Iranian oil and this would get waiver from the Iranian sanctions act of the US Congress. 

The Strategic Dialogue, said External Ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin, is a reflection of the vastness of the India-US relationship and the breadth of engagement between the two countries.
