New Delhi, November 4 (Language) External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said on Saturday that there is diplomatic scope to resolve the diplomatic dispute between India and Canada.
Relations between the two countries have been tense since Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau accused Indian agents of being involved in the murder of a Khalistani separatist.
The Foreign Minister said that both the countries are in touch with each other and hope that a way will be found to resolve this dispute. He said that ‘sovereignty and sensitivity’ cannot be one-sided.
Jaishankar said these things in ‘Hindustan Times Leadership Summit’.
“I think there is room for diplomacy here,” he said. I know that my counterpart in Canada has also expressed the same stance. So, we are in touch with each other.”
The External Affairs Minister said, “I hope we will find a way… Sovereignty, sensitivity – these cannot be one-way streets. They may have their own concerns. I have never told any country that I am not willing to talk to them about their legitimate concerns. But it cannot be that my concerns and sensitivities are completely dismissed in the conversation.”
