The statement of America’s National Security Advisor (NSA) Jake Sullivan has come to light, in which he was asked why the US administration is giving a pass to India and China and giving financial assistance to Russia.
On this, he said that we have taken many actions to protect America’s national security from threats.
He said India is not Russia, and China has its own challenges, which we deal with in our own context. So, of course, there will be differences in how we deal with countries one by one.
America supported Canada
It is noteworthy that in the case of the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, America has once again said to support Canada in the investigation of the allegations against India. From the US side, it was said that no country can get such a ‘special exemption‘.
He said that no country can get a special exemption for such work. We stand against this and will protect our basic principles. We will also continue to consult with Canada as they work through the legal and diplomatic process.
US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has underscored that the United States will not make any “special exemption” for actions like Canada’s allegations concerning the killing of Khalistani separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

Sullivan addressed questions about potential conversations between President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this issue, emphasizing that he would not discuss private diplomatic discussions but that the matter had been discussed at the highest levels. He reaffirmed that the US is committed to standing up for its basic principles and consulting closely with allies like Canada as they pursue their law enforcement and diplomatic processes.
In a different context, Sullivan responded to queries about US-India relations, highlighting that the US addresses its concerns with India as it does with every country in the world. He noted that while India is not Russia and has its unique challenges, the US remains committed to defending American interests and security.
Regarding Canada’s allegations, Sullivan reiterated the US’s deep concern and support for the investigation. He emphasized that there is no wedge between the US and Canada on this issue, and the US will continue to stand by its principles and support Canada’s efforts in the investigation.
Sullivan’s remarks reflect the US’s commitment to upholding its principles and addressing concerns about actions that threaten security, prosperity, or fairness, regardless of the country involved.
