Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau describes situation as 'extremely difficult'

Canada sought Tuesday to maintain its full diplomatic presence in India, after New Delhi reportedly ordered Ottawa to withdraw 40 diplomats in a dispute over the killing of a Sikh separatist.

Relations between Delhi and Ottawa deteriorated sharply two weeks ago when Canada raised the possibility of Indian government involvement in the assassination of Hardeep Singh Nijjar near Vancouver in June.

“In moments of tensions, because indeed there are tensions between both our governments, more than ever it’s important that diplomats be on the ground,” foreign minister Melanie Joly told reporters.

“And that’s why we believe in the importance of having a strong diplomatic footprint in India.”


Joly would not confirm the report, saying instead that the dialogue with New Delhi was taking place “privately.”

“We are in good ongoing conversations with the Indian government,” she said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described the situation as “extremely difficult.”

“We’re not looking to escalate. As I’ve said, we are going to be doing the work that matters in continuing to have constructive relations with India,” he said Tuesday.
