A top Obama Administration official has denied that Mumbai terror attacks suspect David Coleman Headley of late has emerged as a sticking point in the relationship between India and the US.
"I don't think it's a sticking point. I think that we've got a good dialogue and I think we'll work out a way forward," Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Robert Blake told reporters at a news conference on Friday.
"We are very pleased that the United States and India have been able to cooperate very closely on this critical and very complex issue.
We continue to work very hard with our Indian counterparts to move forward on that. But I don't have anything more to say," Blake said.
"I am not in a position to," Blake said when asked if he can say that whether the US is going to give India access to Headley, the US national of Pakistani origin who has been arrested by the FBI on charges of being involved in the planning of the Mumbai terrorist attack.
Indian investigating authorities have been seeking access to Headley so that they could interrogate him on his role in the Mumbai terrorist attack, that killed more than 160 people in November 2008.
