New Delhi: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterates that Canada will always stand out for the rights of peaceful protestors.
The day before, India had condemned the remarks of Justin Trudeau who had expressed concern over the farmers' protest. He said "We are very concerned about our family and friends there. I remind you that Canada will always support the protection of the rights of peaceful protesters. We hope to see a negotiated solution. We have approached the Indian authorities in a number of ways to address our concerns. It is time for us all to come together."
By giving response to this, the Ministry of External Affairs, India has summoned the Canadian High Commissioner and said that Trudeau's remarks would seriously affect diplomatic relations between the two countries and that Trudeau's comments on the issue were not clear.
Yesterday (December 04), in a press conference, when Trudeau was asked about the linkages with India and the fierce reaction of New Delhi about his comments on farmers' protest, he said that, the news from India about the peasant protests was worrying and that Canada was with the peasants who were fighting peacefully for their rights.
Trudeau was one of the first world leaders to respond to the peasant protests in India.
