Indian Envoy Speaks Out Amid Diplomatic Tensions with Canada

Published on

Amidst rising tensions sparked by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s claims regarding the involvement of “agents of the Indian government” in the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, Indian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Vikram Doraiswami emphasized a collaborative approach.

Addressing media at the Indo-Pacific Conference in London, Doraiswami stated, “Let the inquiry committee come to a decision. We share values and interests with our partners.”

When probed about Canada’s allegations, Doraiswami underscored, “It’s an accusation. It’s not anything more than that as far as anything’s concerned.”

The diplomatic friction escalated earlier when India refuted the accusations as “absurd and motivated,” leading to the expulsion of a Canadian diplomat as a reciprocal measure.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) condemned Canada’s support of anti-India elements and cited instances of interference by Canadian diplomats in India’s internal matters as unacceptable. MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi called upon Canada to uphold its obligations under the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations.

Echoing the sentiment, Indian High Commissioner in Canada, Sanjay Kumar Verma, emphasized India’s request for “specific and relevant” evidence to aid in Canada’s investigation into the incident. Verma assured cooperation, urging Canadian authorities to provide essential information for a conclusive probe.
