During a press conference in Washington on Tuesday, Obama said that the US official, identified as Raymond Davis, enjoys diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention, a Press TV correspondent reported.
"If our diplomats are in another country, then they are not subject to that country's local prosecution," Obama stated. He called on Islamabad to abide by the convention and set Davis free.
Meanwhile, US Senate Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry, who arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday for talks about Davis's case, has apologized over the killings.'
