Clinton looking forward to meeting Vajpayee
US President Bill Clinton Tuesday said he is "excited" over meeting Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and is looking forward to welcoming him.
"We are going to meet shortly and I am looking forward to welcoming Prime Minister Vajpayee to the United States because I received such a wonderful welcome in India," he told Star News referring to his highly-successful visit to India in March this year.
"I loved it and of course my wife and my family had previously been there before me and my daughter and mother-in-law went back with me," he said ahead of Vajpayee's visit to Washington commencing from September 13.
"It was magnificent for us both personally and as representatives of the United States so I am excited that he is coming here," Clinton said.
Vajpayee's engagements in Washington include address to the US Congress, intensive meetings with Clinton and other American leaders besides attending a banquet hosted in his honour by the US President and a lunch by Vice President Al Gore.
