A distorted narrative is being peddled over Foreign Minister S Jaishankar's move to cancel a meeting with senior US lawmakers in Washington, D.C., earlier this week, government officials have said. Mr Jaishankar had cancelled a meeting with the powerful US House Foreign Affairs Committee because he did not want to meet Democrat Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, a known critic of India's stand on Kashmir. Government officials said that since Ms Jayapal is not a member of the committee Mr Jaishankar was under no obligation to meet her. "No Foreign Minister of any independent country should be pressurised into meeting politicians with their own agendas," officials said.
