Blinken Urges India’s Cooperation in Canadian Investigation

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has urged India to “cooperate fully” with the ongoing Canadian investigation into the killing of a Khalistani terrorist, a senior state department official said on Friday, a day after External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met the top American diplomat here.

Diplomatic Standoff Over Khalistani Terrorist’s Killing

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has alleged that the Indian government was behind the killing of Khalistan Terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar on June 18. India had designated Mr Nijjar as a terrorist in 2020. India has rejected Canada’s allegations as “absurd” and “motivated”.

Key Discussions Between Jaishankar and Blinken

Earlier, the state department said Mr Blinken met with Mr Jaishankar and the two leaders discussed a full range of issues, including key outcomes of India’s G20 presidency, and the creation of the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor and its potential to generate transparent, sustainable, and high-standard infrastructure investments.

Upcoming India-US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue

India will host the fifth edition of India-US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue, Mr Jaishankar announced on Thursday. Although he did not reveal the dates of the meeting, it is learned that the ministerial dialogue would be held in the first half of November.
