India expels Canadian diplomat and rejects accusations

India expels Canadian diplomat and rejects accusations
New Delhi, Sep 19 (Prensa Latina) India notified its decision to expel a Canadian senior diplomat and rejected statements by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau linking India to violent events that occurred in Canada.

The Indian Ministry of External Affairs explained that the decision to dismiss the Canadian diplomat is due to growing concerns about the interference of their functionaries in internal affairs and their participation in activities aimed against India.

The Canadian High Commissioner in India was summoned and informed this Tuesday, therefore the diplomat has five days to leave India, according to a note from the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Indian authorities forcefully rejected the recent statements of Trudeau and his Foreign Minister Melanie Joy about the alleged responsibility of the Indian government and its Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in violent events in Canada. “The accusations of involvement of the Government of India in any act of violence in Canada are absurd and motivated,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced.

Indian Diplomatic authorities confirmed that India maintains a democratic political system with a strong commitment to the rule of law, described these accusations as unfounded and said that they only aim to divert the attention away from terrorists and extremists who have been provided refuge in Canada.

The Ministry of External Affairs also stated that these individuals continue to threaten the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India, and that the Canadian government’s inaction in this matter has been a long-standing and ongoing concern.

The fact that Canadian political figures have openly expressed their sympathy for such elements remains a cause of deep concern, the Ministry stated, and noted that the space granted by Canada to a variety of illegal activities, including murders, human trafficking and organized crime, is not something new.
