us has shared more information with india than canada on nijjar killing says indian envoy sanjay kumar verma
Ottawa: As the India-Canada diplomatic rift continues, Indian High Commissioner to Canada Sanjay Kumar Verma has stated that the United States has shared more credible information with India than Canada. Following Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s explosive allegations, Ottawa is yet to share proof with New Delhi to back its allegations.
Speaking to CTV, a Canadian News Outlset, the High Commissioner has stated that the US authorities have shared more specific information regarding the probe as opposed to Canada, who have accused India in the first place.
Due to the US sharing more information with India and keeping the investigation open, India is cooperating more with Washington than Canada. The High Commissioner added that over the past two months, India has been readily cooperating with the US is also because America has shared inputs with India which is “legally presentable.”
India-Canada Rift: India Continues To Ask For Proof
Last week, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar once again called on Canada to present proof that backs its allegations against India.
“If you have a reason to make such an allegation please share the evidence because we are not ruling out an investigation…,” stated Jaishankar during his visit to the UK. The EAM Added that despite India being ready to cooperate, Canada is yet to share the proof supporting its allegations.
In September, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau publically accused India of killing a Canadian Sikh Citizen (and Khalistani terrorist) Hardeep Sikh Nijjar. India has dismissed these claims and called them “absurd and motivated”.
Since these allegations, diplomatic ties between the two commonwealth countrieshit an all-time low as India paused visa services for Canadians and ordered the Canadian government to reduce their diplomatic presence across the country.News Related
