An Indian diplomat at the center of a disagreement with the United States for allegedly lying on a visa application for her maid has left the U.S.

印度女外交官柯布拉加德已经离开美国,她涉嫌在为其保姆申请签证时撒谎,此事导致印度与美国之间的分歧。

Devyani Khobragade flew out of the U.S. Thursday night after India turned down a U.S. request to waive her diplomatic immunity.

柯布拉加德星期四晚间乘飞机离开美国,此前印度拒绝了美国提出的免除其豁免权的要求。

Khobragade had been serving as India's deputy counsel general in New York. However, on Thursday - following standard procedure - U.S. officials accepted India's request to change her accreditation to the United Nations as a diplomat, giving her full immunity.

柯布拉加德本是印度驻纽约的副总领事,但按照标准程序,美国官员星期四接受印度方面的要求,将柯布拉加德的驻美身份改为驻联合国的外交官,给予她全面豁免权。

Once she had full immunity, the State Department asked India to waive it so that Khobragade could face charges. But India denied the request.

在柯布拉加德获得全面豁免权后,美国国务院要求印度免除她的这一权利,以便美方对她提出起诉,但印度拒绝了这一要求。

The spokesman said the charges against her will not be dropped upon leaving the country, and she will face them if she returns.

美国国务院发言人说,柯布拉加德离境后,针对她的指控不会撤销,而一旦她返回美国,将会面临起诉。
