National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan Condemns Attack On San Francisco Consulate
WASHINGTON, DC(ANI) – US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan has condemned the attack that took place on March 19 on the Indian Consulate in San Francisco by Khalistani separatist elements.
Sullivan said that the US is committed to the safety and security of Indian diplomats. He confirmed that the US State Department is in touch with the local law enforcement authorities.
Even after the “condemnation”, more than 200 protesters waving Khalistan flags again descended upon the Indian Consulate in San Francisco on March 22 for a planned demonstration amid a heightened security presence of the San Francisco Police Department (SFDP).
Unlike the violent disorder on Sunday when the Consulate came under attack, the protesters were heavily barricaded across the road with uniformed SFPD officers standing guard and patrolling the area.
The protesters included turbaned men of all ages who chanted pro-Khalistan slogans. They came in from different parts of the Bay area.
The organizers used mics to make anti-India speeches both in English and Punjabi and attack the Punjab police for alleged human rights violations.
