Amid the ongoing tension between Canada and India, US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller has said that we are concerned about the situation in Canada. We fully cooperated with Canada. We have also appealed to India to help in the investigation and we will continue to make this appeal. India is an important partner of the United States and we work with India on a lot of issues. But on this issue, we urge them to cooperate with Canada's investigation.

"The allegations made against India are not correct at all.
Here, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has spoken on the allegations made by the Canadian government on India. He said that the allegations made on India regarding the killing of terrorist Nijjar are not correct from anywhere. This is also because India never indulges in such things under its fixed policies. The diplomatic row between India and Canada began after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that his government had "credible allegations" of India's involvement in the killing of Nijjar on Canadian soil in June.
The US also supported India.
Significantly, the allegations made by Canada on India were also called wrong by the White House. The development comes days after the White House said the US was in touch with India over Canada's allegations that New Delhi was possibly involved in the killing of a Sikh separatist on Canadian soil. White House Press Secretary Carine Jean-Pierre had said that the US is also in regular contact with the Canadian government.
