Washington: Amid reports of Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna`s resignation, the US refrained from expressing its views on the resignation as this has not been formally announced, the State Department said.

"We`ve seen the press reports that he`s offered to resign. To my understanding, there are still ongoing discussions inside India, so we`ll withhold comment until there are decisions," Victoria Nuland, the State Department spokesperson, said during a conference yesterday.

Nuland was responding to a question on the reports of resignation of Krishna, over in the Obama Administration he had developed a personal relationship with the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Both Hillary and Krishna were instrumental in the launch of the annual India-US Strategic Dialogue. Krishna made several trips to US, the last one being in September this year to attend the General Assembly of the US, during which he met Hillary.
