Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that India’s decision to revoke diplomatic immunity of 41 Canadian diplomats is a violation of Vienna Convention and it should worry all countries in the world, hours after New Delhi rejected Ottawa’s attempt to portray the implementation of parity as a violation of international norms.
Speaking at a press conference in Brampton, Ontario, he said the Indian government was making it “unbelievably difficult” for life as usual to continue for millions of people in India and in Canada following the decision.
“And, they’re doing it by contravening a very basic principle of diplomacy,” Justin said.
