India-Canada Diplomatic Row And Its Connection
This development comes amid the ongoing diplomatic row between India and Canada. The dispute between both countries started when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed to have credible evidence suggesting a possible connection between Indian agents and the killing of Khalistani supporter Hardeep Singh Nijjar. Nijjar was fatally shot by unidentified individuals in a Vancouver suburb.
India has dismissed the Canadian Prime Minister’s allegations as absurd.
In the meantime, the United States has expressed support for a thorough investigation into Nijjar’s killing and emphasised the importance of following principles of international law, sovereignty, and non-interference.
