Khar, Krishna may meet in NY


External Affairs Minister Hina Rabbani Khar could meet her Indian counterpart SM Krishna on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly, a top Indian official said on Tuesday. Indian envoy to the UN Hardeep Singh Puri said while there was no word yet of a formal bilateral meeting between Krishna and Khar, the “possibility” of a meeting in a social set-up “is very likely”, reported PTI “There will be situations where they will meet at social events, various receptions, most certainly,” Puri told a group of Indian journalists ahead of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s September 22-25 visit to the UN. Puri said there will be “many occasions” for Krishna and Khar to meet at the UNGA even though a bilateral meeting is not yet on the schedule.
