As Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Canadian PM Justin Trudeau on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in New Delhi, he conveyed strong concerns about the continuing “anti-India” activities of extremist elements in Canada, the MEA said.
“He (PM Modi) conveyed our strong concerns about the continuing anti-India activities of extremist elements in Canada. They are promoting secessionism and inciting violence against Indian diplomats, damaging diplomatic premises, and threatening the Indian community in Canada and their places of worship,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
The MEA also said that the nexus of such forces with organised crime, drug syndicates and human trafficking should be a concern for Canada as well.
“It is essential for the two countries to cooperate in dealing with such threats. The PM also mentioned that a relationship based on mutual respect and trust is essential for the progress of India-Canada relationship,” the statement read.
Shortly after his meeting with PM Modi, the Canadian PM also responded to questions regarding Khalistan extremism in a press briefing.
He said his country will always defend freedom of peaceful protest but at the same time asserted that it will always prevent violence and push back against hatred.

“Canada will always defend freedom of expression, freedom of conscience, and freedom of peaceful protest and it is extremely important to us,” he said.
“At the same time, we are always there to prevent violence and to push back against hatred. 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,” said Trudeau.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi had said that he discussed full range of India-Canada ties across different sectors.
