Washington: The U.S. said employment of domestic workers will now be on agenda for the bilateral talks with India with which it is in conversation to "determine the way forward" in resolving the 14-day-long diplomatic row.

"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 of transfer of Devyani Khobragade from the Indian Consulate in New York to India’s Permanent Mission in 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.

Officials from both the countries continued to hold talks to resolve the issue, which has strained bilateral ties.

The State Department official’s remarks came a day after India, in a tough reciprocal action, downgraded the immunity of certain category of U.S.  diplomats and withdrew the immunity enjoyed by their family members.
