US President Barack Obamas Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke has cancelled his trip to India, reported Indian media. US State Department spokesman PJ Crowley told reporters here on Thursday that a mismatch in terms of scheduling had led to the cancellation of the trip to Delhi. I think the Ambassador (Holbrooke) is not going to stop in India on this trip. There was a mismatch in terms of scheduling. So, he will do that on this - on a future trip to the region, Crowley said. Saying he didnt know the reason for Holbrooke postponing the trip to India, one former senior US official said: Theres a hornets nest in India now because of opposition attacks on parts of the India-Pakistan joint statement just agreed in Sharm el-Sheikh. I suppose its possible the Indians didnt want a discussion about Pakistan with the United States just now. But I doubt thats the reason.
