Washington DC, Sep 27 (ANI): Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will meet US President Barack Obama on Friday, a day after he arrived in Washington DC in the USA, to discuss a host of issues related to defence, economic, bilateral and multilateral concerns. India is making a last-minute push to close a nuclear deal in time for a meeting between Obama and Singh, who has made atomic energy cooperation with Washington a hallmark of his tenure. Commenting on this proposed meeting with Obama, he said they would review the progress that has been made and also what further could be done to strengthen it.
