"Those comments absolutely do not reflect US Government policy, nor were they made on any official US Government social media account," State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters at her daily news conference.
    
Harf was responding to questions on the Facebook postings by American diplomat Wayne May and her spouse Alicia Muller in which they allegedly made offensive comments about India.
    
Citing privacy reasons, the State Department official refused to identify the diplomat who was asked to leave India. But Indian sources have identified them as Wayne May and
Alicia Muller May. The couple was not available for reaction.
    
Harf said she has not seen the comments. "I've seen the reports of them. Again, I would underscore that these do not in any way represent the US Government position," she added.
