(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – On Thursday, the White House denied that there was a “wedge” in the country’s relations with Canada following the recent assassination of a Sikh leader.
In June, Hardeep Singh Nijjar was murdered while in Canada. The death has caused a rift in the diplomatic relations between Canada and India. However, according to Jake Sullivan, the National Security Advisor, there was no “wedge” created between Canada and the U.S. as a result of the incident. He further added that they were concerned over the emergence of these allegations and that the U.S. was looking forward to the results of the investigation into the murder which would allow the perpetrators of the crime to be brought to justice. As he pointed out, this is the position that the United States has maintained since the news of the murder first came out.
Sullivan further noted that following Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegations regarding the incident, the U.S. publicly noted their own concerns and expressed support for the investigation that would allow for the perpetrators to be held accountable. He added that the U.S. was also in contact with the Indian government and that this is a case they are taking seriously and one they will continue to work on.
Earlier this week the Washington Post put out a report regarding many senior officials of Canada’s Five Eyes allies being informed about the allegations. However, no public comments were made prior to the G20 summit, which was held in India.
