NEW DELHI, INDIA, January 3, 2002: Union Home Minister L K Advani's six-day visit to the United States beginning January 8 will take him across the country from New York to San Francisco and bring him face to face with some of the top decision-makers in the Bush Administration. These include Secretary of State Colin Powell, Attorney General John Ashcroft who sent him the invitation, the Mayor of New York, the top brass of the FBI and the CIA. A ''brief session'' with President George Bush is also likely. Advani will be escorted to Ground Zero to pay his respects to the victims of the 9-11 attack. Advani's main agenda is to discuss ways to set up a strong intelligence-sharing mechanism between India and the United States.
