External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met his US counterpart Antony Blinken in Washington on Thursday. They discussed various issues but did not mention the row over Canada’s allegations of India’s involvement in the killing of a Khalistani terrorist. The Canadian Prime Minister has repeatedly claimed that Indian government agents were connected to the murder. India has denied these allegations and has stated that they will investigate if provided with specific information. The meeting between Jaishankar and Blinken focused on the outcomes of India’s G20 presidency and the creation of the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor. Both leaders expressed their satisfaction with the discussions. Jaishankar is currently on a five-day official trip to Washington and announced that New Delhi will host the fifth edition of the India-US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue. The dates of the meeting have not been disclosed yet. The implications of the India-Canada dispute were not addressed during the meeting, and Secretary Blinken declined to comment on the matter to reporters.
