India, Canad :trade talks amid Khalistan row


NEW DELHI: Amid tensions with the Trudeau government over inaction against Khalistan supporters, India and Canada have "paused" trade talks due to "certain political developments", a top official said on Friday.


While officials suggested that too much should not be read into the development, it was quite clear that the government is not impressed with the way Canada has repeatedly ignored India's concerns, preferring to make domestic politics paramount.


Earlier this month, Canada announced that it has paused the negotiations for the agreement, without assigning any reason. "India has shown a strong resentment against certain political developments in Canada, and therefore, for the time being, till these political issues are settled, we have paused the negotiations," the official said.


Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's stance resulted in the Modi government giving him a cold shoulder during his recent visit for the G20 Summit in Delhi, where he was stranded as his 30-year-old plane developed problems and the replacement aircraft too developed a snag.


India and Canada were discussing an early harvest scheme or a preliminary free trade agreement to push bilateral trade with New Delhi interested in securing easier visa regime for students and professionals.


On September 10, PM Narendra Modi conveyed India's strong concerns about anti-India activities of extremist elements in Canada that were promoting secessionism, inciting violence against its diplomats and threatening the Indian community there.


Over half a dozen rounds of talks have been held between the countries on the trade pact so far. A trade agreement with Canada was among the high priority deals that India is negotiating, including with countries such as the UK and European Union with a full treaty with Australia and Gulf Cooperation Council also in the pipeline.

Justin Trudeau is supporting Khalistani protagonists in his country due to domestic political considerations. But Trudeau is not realising that these very terrorist Khalistani elements will ruin their country as Frankenstein. Pakistan is the live example for Trudeau to see.

A kalistanb referendum was recently held in canada. The canadian PM was in India. What is happening there. are the kalistanis so strong there to go to the level of holding a referendu. Is vote bank politics being practised there too.




"PM of Canada should resign and have new elections so that new PM should come and get over from Trudeau family . In the mean time india should not be talking with Canadian government and doing business until it come to its sense".

India should stop exporting all cheaper items to Canada and discourage imports of Canadian goods. itihaas filed relations with India and China, and both countries should stop importing energy supplies from Canada.

No need to talk to a country which is bent upon breaking India by supporting khalistani animals. In the present case canada needs us more than we need them.

Canada PM Mr Trudeau is not a seasoned politician and certainly not a diplomat wh is proved by the way he answered India's query on how Canada thinks to tackle khalistani terrorists who have issued death threats to Indian embassy officials and indulge in anti India marches to n gheraos of Indian embassies and write bad graffitis on Indian Hindu temples, of which they and their ancestors have themselves been an integral part.

Canada in the name of expression of freedom is harboring terrorists and phrase “kee snake in own backyard and thinking that it wont bite them” fits best to them. Sooner or later Canada shall become dangerous place to live like Pakistan




Trudeau is anti Indian and giving him cold shoulder is very commendable.

Trudeau is Canada's Pappu!!!
