With a meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Barack Obama not taking place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, a meeting is being arranged between external affairs minister SM Krishna and secretary of state Hillary Clinton in New York on Monday.

"We are planning a meeting between secretary of state and external affairs minister SM Krishna on Monday subject to confirmation," foreign secretary Ranjan Mathai told reporters.

To a question whether there was growing distrust between India and the US in the context of a meeting not taking place between Obama and Singh, Mathai said the Prime Minister had arrived in New York after Obama had left and that was why a bilateral meeting was not possible.

However, he noted that the two leaders could meet in the upcoming G-20 Summit in France in November.
