WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States is in contact with India and Canada after Ottawa said Indian government agents had links to the killing of a Sikh separatist leader in British Columbia, U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Thursday.
“We are in constant contact with our Canadian counterparts … and we have also been in contact with the Indian government,” Sullivan told reporters at the White House.
“I strongly reject the idea that there is a wedge between the United States and Canada. We are deeply concerned about the allegations and want this investigation to continue and the perpetrators to be held accountable.”
