Trudeau Sticks to Support for Farmers' Stir Despite India's Summons to Canadian High Commissioner

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday stuck to his support of the ongoing farmers’ agitation in India despite official summons being issued to the country’s High Commissioner over the PM’s earlier statement on the agitation.

Trudeau, backing the agitating farmers in India, had said that Canada will always be there to defend the rights of peaceful protests, and had expressed concern over the situation.

He stuck to his position when asked about India’s warning of its impact on ties on Friday, saying Canada will continue to “stand up for peaceful protests and human rights”. He, however, welcomed the ongoing talks between farmers and the Narendra Modi government, and apparent efforts at “de-escalation”.

The demonstrations are now picking pace on globally too. Protests to support the farmers are happening outside India's high commission and consulates in Canada
