White House stated that the US wants the plot to kill Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun fully investigated, and those responsible to be held accountable properly.
India is a strategic partner for the United States, the White House has said as it urged New Delhi to hold accountable those responsible for the plot to assassinate the Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, who is an American citizen.
“India is a strategic partner. We’re deepening that strategic partnership. They’re a member of the Quad in the Pacific. We participate with them on a range of issues and we want to see that continue unabated. That said, at the same time, we certainly recognise the seriousness of these allegations,” National Security spokesperson John Kirby said.
Kirby was responding to a question on the impact that the alleged plot would have on the bilateral India-US relationship.
“We want it fully investigated and those responsible to be held properly accountable,” he said.
