Foreign Minister Disputes Canada’s Accusations, Cites Lack of Evidence
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ali Sabry, has responded to the diplomatic dispute between India and Canada, expressing concern that Canada is providing a safe haven for terrorists and accusing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making baseless allegations without evidence.
In an interview with India’s ANI, Sabry noted that he is not surprised by Trudeau’s comments, as the Canadian leader has a history of making “outrageous and unsubstantiated allegations.” Sabry referenced a previous instance when Canada accused Sri Lanka of genocide, which he deemed a “terrible, baseless lie.”
The recent dispute stems from Trudeau’s remarks on September 18, in which he suggested that India was involved in the shooting of Khalistan separatist Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada. India promptly rejected these allegations as “absurd and motivated.”
The ongoing diplomatic tensions underscore the importance of evidence-based claims and responsible diplomacy in international relations.
