Canada has taken action to relocate a significant portion of its diplomatic personnel stationed in India to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore as the deadline set by India for reducing their diplomatic presence in the country looms closer. This move comes amidst a diplomatic dispute between India and Canada, triggered by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s allegations regarding the involvement of Indian “agents” in the assassination of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar.
The diplomatic tensions between India and Canada escalated when the Indian government requested the Trudeau administration to transfer 41 of its diplomats out of India. The objective was to establish parity in the number of diplomats stationed in each of the two nations.
Reports indicate that India had given Canada a deadline of October 10 to downsize its diplomatic presence within the country. In response to this ultimatum, Canada has begun relocating its diplomats to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
This move signifies a significant development in the ongoing diplomatic row between the two nations and highlights the evolving dynamics of their bilateral relations.
