India’s “Space Allotted To Terrorists, Separatists Is Canada’s Main Problem”

On Thursday, India reiterated that the space given to separatists, terrorists, and anti-India elements in Canada continues to be its “core issue” with that country.
Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), made the remarks the day after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested that there may have been “a tonal shift” in India-Canada relations as a result of the indictment of an Indian national in the US for allegedly planning to kill a Sikh separatist.

“We have maintained a constant stance. We have made clear how we view the issue, and to be honest, the main concern is still the country’s allowance of extremists, terrorists, and anti-Indian elements,” Mr. Bagchi stated.
