    Washington: On Friday, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that he and Secretary of State Tony Blinken had discussed Canadian allegations surrounding the death of a Khalistani separatist the day before, and that both delegations had emerged "better informed" as a result of the conversation.

    When asked if he had discussed the Canadian claims with Blinken during their meeting at the State Department's Foggy Bottom headquarters, Jaishankar responded, "Yes, I did," during his visit at the prestigious Hudson Institute think-tank.

    The Americans offered their perspectives on the situation, and he briefed them on India's main worries. The two of us, I hope, are better informed for the experience," Jaishankar added.—Inputs from Agencies
