Mumbai attacks won't stop Clinton trip to India
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says it is more important now than ever to show solidarity with India in its fight against terrorism and she will not cancel her planned trip to the country next week following bomb attacks in Mumbai.
Speaking to reporters at the State Department shortly after coordinated blasts struck India's commercial capital on Wednesday killing at least 21 people and wounding 113, Clinton offered condolences to the Indian people and government. She said India has been hit by terrorism before and has responded "with courage and resilience."
Clinton said she will go ahead with her trip as planned and believes "it is more important than ever that we stand with India." Clinton is scheduled to visit New Delhi and Chennai starting next Tuesday.
