New Delhi – ExternalAffairs Minister Salman Khurshid said Saturday that India and the US are in talks to resolve the stand-off over the alleged mistreatment of an Indian envoy and both sides would not want their close ties to be hurt by this “one incident”.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event at the industry chamber FICCI, the minister said that the ongoing “conversation” between India and the US to resolve the row over the treatment meted out to India’s deputy consul general in New York should be allowed to come to its “logical conclusion”.

“Let the conversation go to its logical conclusion… my conversation (with the US) is not completed,’ Khurshid said to questions on what India and US are doing to resolve the stand-off, especially after the US said it would not dilute its legal stand on Khobragade, who has been charged with visa fraud and underpaying her nanny.

He said India and the US have close ties that have been built up over many years and both sides would not want the partnership to be spoilt over “one incident”.
“People of both sides do not want the ties to be spoilt between two old friends by this one incident,” he said.
