US-India relationship: We have mature ties, work through differences: Deputy NSA Jonathan Finer

New Delhi: US deputy national security advisor Jonathan Finer has discussed with Indian authorities the case filed in a US court by American prosecutors against an Indian national for his alleged involvement in a plot to kill a Khalistani separatist leader on American soil.

Finer, who was in India on Monday, met external affairs minister S Jaishankar, NSA Ajit Doval and deputy NSA Vikram Misri, among other officials.

He “acknowledged India’s establishment of a Committee of Enquiry to investigate lethal plotting in the United States and the importance of holding accountable anyone found responsible”, the White House said in a statement.

Last Wednesday, US federal prosecutors charged Indian national Nikhil Gupta, 52, of working with an Indian government employee in the foiled plot to kill Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, a Sikh extremist. The US prosecutors informed a Manhattan court that authorities in the Czech Republic arrested Gupta.

A day later, India described as a “matter of concern” the US linking an Indian official to a man charged with conspiring to kill Pannun and asserted that follow-up action would be taken based on findings of an inquiry panel investigating the allegations.

Addressing a technology summit here on Monday night, Finer noted that the US and India have established a mature relationship that enabled both sides to identify opportunities and work through differences.But he admitted that the US and India have a “complicated history” and they have not always been “wholly aligned”.Finer also said there are many “difficult issues” that remain in the relationship “right up to the present day”.

At the same time, he said there is a bipartisan view in the US that both countries must seize some important opportunities that the world presents to the two sides, both geo politically and economically.
