India must work with us to “expose the truth”: Justin Trudeau amid controversy

“We call on the Indian government to work with us to uncover the truth about this case and ensure justice and accountability,” Trudeau said on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

However, he refused to provide the evidence that led him to accuse India of the killing on Monday, suggesting it would be left to the courts to make it public when the case comes to trial.

On Monday, Trudeau sparked a major diplomatic controversy when he alleged that Indian agents played a role in the killing of Hardeep Singh Nijjar, a Canadian citizen, near Vancouver in June.

The outcome resulted in a tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsion and a strong denial from India, which said any suggestion that it had any role in Nijjar’s killing was “absurd”.

India also stopped handling visa applications in Canada, blaming “security threats”, which it said were “disrupting” the work of its officials, and demanding reductions in Canadian diplomatic staff in India. of.

Trudeau insisted Thursday that his government is “not trying to incite or cause trouble” when asked why there were no reactions from Canada’s allies to the allegations.

Western powers, led by the United States, have for years viewed India as a natural ally in a democracy with a population of more than a billion, as concerns about China grow.
