Ottawa: The Ministry of external affairs (MEA) has confirmed farmers’ issues was discussed PM Modi and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau’s talks with the latter “commended” New Delhi’s efforts “to choose the path of dialogue as befitting in democracy”.

Both leaders had spoken to each other earlier this week. The readout of the Canadian Govt said that Justin Trudeau had raised the farmers’ issue with PM Modi. It said that the leaders discussed “Canada and India’s commitment to democratic principles, recent protests, and the importance of resolving issues through dialogue”

In December, the Canadian PM had commented on the ongoing farmers’ protests in India angering New Delhi. The matter was raised in both Ottawa and Delhi, with MEA summoning the Canadian Envoy to India Nadir Patel and handing over a strong demarche.

New Delhi had conveyed to Canada that such comments pertaining to the internal affairs of India are “unwarranted and unacceptable” and could impact ties.

India is increasingly worried about the Khalistani elements in Canadian society, something that also threatens the safety of its diplomats.

The MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said during the talks, Canadian PM “acknowledged the responsibility of his Government in providing protection to Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in Canada.”

Recent weeks have seen protests by these elements, including anti-India campaigns by Canadian national Mo Dhaliwal, who was responsible for a “toolkit” that was tweeted by climate activist Greta Thunberg.
