Washington: There has been a significant strain in US-India relations, as the United States has announced to restrict diplomatic relations with India.
According to international media reports, the US Ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti, revealed the further deterioration of relations by stating that the United States would temporarily cut off contact with Indian officials.
Eric Garcetti stated that due to the Hardeep Singh Nijjar controversy, relations between the United States and India could worsen further. The allegations of India’s involvement in Hardeep Singh’s murder are extremely serious. The US State Department, through Matthew Miller, has already stated that India must cooperate with Canada in the investigation of Hardeep Singh’s murder.
According to international media, the Modi government attempted to suppress the voices of Sikhs in the United States, as it did in Canada, but it faces strong opposition from Sikh organizations and protest movements in the United States. According to the US State Department, every US citizen has the right to freedom of expression, and the US’s support for Canada and Sikhs is deeply concerning and dangerous for India.
