Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, asked about Khalistan extremism and “foreign interference”, today said he discussed both issues with Prime Minister Narendra Modi multiple times “over the years”.
“Canada will always defend freedom of expression, freedom of conscience, and freedom of peaceful protest and it is extremely important to us. At the same time, we are always there to prevent violence and to push back against hatred,” he told reporters during an interaction.
“I think on the issue of the community, it is important to remember that the actions of the few do not represent the entire community or Canada. The flip side of it, we also highlighted the importance of respecting the rule of law and we did talk about foreign interference,” he added.
