Singh said Pakistan remained the 'epicentre of terror'.
"I explained to President Obama the difficulties that we face given the fact that the epicentre of terror still remains focussed in Pakistan," Singh said.
Singh said he is looking forward to meet Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in New York but the expectation from the meeting should be toned down.
"I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif even though the expectations have to be toned down," he said.
Singh earlier in the day called US as the most important trading partner of India.
"The United States is one of India's most important trading partners, important provider of investment and technology support for India's development and we need the United States on our side as we move to give new added thrust to our development programmes," Singh said.
Regarding his bilateral visit to the US, the PM said: "The United States is one of our most important strategic partners and during President Obama's regime, we have taken several steps to widen and deepen this partnership in diverse fields."
"And during the present visit, we will review the progress that has been made and also what further can be done to give added meaning and content to this partnership," he added.
