NEW DELHI (AP) - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has arrived in India where he will encourage leaders to take a more active role in Afghanistan.
India has played a somewhat limited role in the war, largely doing economic development and reconstruction.
U.S. defense officials said Panetta will talk with Indian officials about possibly helping to train the Afghan army and police.
The discussions are likely to roil America's already tense relations with Pakistan, which has long had a rocky, distrusting relationship with India.
