India's Look East policy was essential for the integration of the Asia Pacific region, US secretary of state Hillary Clinton said on Monday.

Clinton, who arrived here Sunday on the first leg of her two-day India visit, will be in New Delhi later on Monday. She will meet West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee before leaving Kolkata.
