India Expels Canadian Diplomat Amid Escalating Tensions

What You Need To Know:

India decisively expelled a senior Canadian diplomat on Tuesday, heightening a bilateral dispute over Canadian claims of India’s involvement in the killing of a Sikh separatist leader near Vancouver.

The Details:

India swiftly dismissed these allegations as baseless. The expulsion, according to the Ministry of External Affairs, was a direct response to what they perceived as Canadian diplomats meddling in India’s internal affairs and engaging in activities contrary to India’s interests.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sought to temper the situation, asserting that Canada’s aim is not to incite or escalate. He emphasized their commitment to presenting the facts and expressed a keenness to collaborate with the Indian government to achieve clarity and establish proper procedures. Trudeau urged India to treat the matter with the utmost gravity.
