Trudeau is hopeful about stronger India-Canada relation

In his recent interview with CBC News, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau highlighted the alignment between Canada and India on several major issues. He emphasized that both countries share common goals and perspectives on critical global matters, suggesting a strong foundation for bilateral cooperation. This reflects the broader strategic relationship and mutual interests that have been developing between the two nations.

Canada’s relationship with India
Just days ago, Trudeau and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi met for the first time since Trudeau publicly accused India’s government of involvement in the assassination of Canadian Sikh activist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The Modi government has denied ordering killings in Canada, and the public accusation severely strained relations between the two countries.

When questioned about the interaction, Trudeau said there is “alignment on a number of big issues that we need to work on as democracies” and as a global community.

“But now that [Modi] is through his election, I think there is an opportunity for us to engage, including on some very serious issues around national security and keeping Canadians safe,” Trudeau added.
