NEW-DELHI: In Response to the strained diplomatic situation between Canada and India following the recent visa ban, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has expressed a desire to engage in meaningful dialogue and work in collaboration with the Indian government. Trudeau stressed the need for India to take the allegations seriously and pursue justice, reiterating Canada's commitment to upholding the rule of law and international order.

Addressing the escalating tensions, Trudeau emphasized, "As a country governed by the rule of law, we have a responsibility to ensure that all investigative processes are conducted in a rigorous and independent manner." He highlighted the significance of adhering to international norms and underscored the gravity of complicity in the killing of a citizen within one's own borders.

Trudeau continued, referencing the credible reasons behind his previous statement, "I said on Monday that there were credible reasons to believe that Indian government agents were involved in the killing of a Canadian on Canadian soil." He stressed that such matters are fundamentally important in a nation governed by the rule of law and within a world that values an international rules-based order. He urged India to join Canada in striving for truth and transparency in this critical issue.
