Canada alleged that the repatriation of Canadian diplomats from India violated the terms of the Vienna Convention.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in this context, if big countries start breaking international law in this way, this world will become more dangerous for everyone.
Canada has accused India of having a role in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijhar. They are still stubborn in that position. Trudeau said, “From the beginning, we have received complaints that agents of the Indian government are involved in the killing of a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil.” We talk to India about that and ask to see it in the end. We have informed our allies including America about this.
Trudeau also said, “We are deeply disappointed to see India violating the provisions of the Vienna Convention.” They expelled 40 of our diplomats from the country. Think about it from our point of view. We have evidence that Indian agents were involved in the killings. We told that to India, and in response India sent back our diplomats. It is a cause of concern to the entire world.
He also said that we do not want to fight with India. But we will always follow the law, speak for the law.
India has been denying Nijjar’s involvement in the killing since the beginning. Instead, New Delhi blamed Canada for harboring banned terrorists in India. After the incident, Canada’s visa was also stopped by India. Later, however, it was partially reinstated.
