MEA says Trudeau commended India for holding dialogue with protesting farmers

New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs on Friday said that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has hailed the Central government’s efforts to resolve the deadlock with the protesting farmers through “dialogue as befitting in democracy.’

“On the farmers’ protests, Prime Minister Trudeau commended efforts of the Government of India to choose the path of dialogue as befitting in democracy,’ said MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava during his weekly media briefing held in virtual format.

`Trudeau also acknowledged the responsibility of his government in providing protection to Indian diplomatic premises and personnel in Canada,’ the spokesperson said.

The MEA statement came a day after Prime Minister Trudeau’s office said that he had spoken to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi about “recent protests’ — an obvious reference to the farmers protest at Delhi borders against the farm laws.
