I am using VEMap.Find function of Bing Map AJAX API 6.3. I want to find out the country for the given address using VEMap.Find function in the callback.
e.g. If I pass one address "516 Great Northern Rd, Sault Ste Marie, ON, P6B 4Z9" to VEMap.Find function. In the callback I don't get country for the given address.
So how can I find out country for the given address? Or is there any parameter like mkt that we can pass in the bing map url so that we can do address search for only one country?

The Find() function is not designed to validate partially-completed addresses - it is designed to geocode (i.e. return the coordinates) of a complete address. I suggest you look for an address validation service instead, although I would still expect that you would have to provide a country in which to search.
For example, take the following address:
"1 Warwick Street, Norwich"
What country do you expect to get?
