Domestic help on talks agenda: US

Washington (PTI): With India hitting back by withdrawing certain privileges of American diplomats, the US on Wednesday said the employment of domestic workers will now be on the agenda for bilateral talks.

Washington also maintained that it is in conversation with New Delhi to “determine the way forward” in resolving the two-week-old diplomatic row over the arrest of senior Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade on visa fraud charges.

“The Department of State is in conversation with the Government of India on determining the way forward on the immediate case,” a State Department official told PTI, as it continued to review the application on Khobragade’s transfer from the Consulate in New York to India’s Permanent Mission at the United Nations.

“However, we recognise the need to address the larger issues. The employment of domestic workers will be on the agenda for bilateral discussion in the weeks and months ahead,” the official said.
