Canada Urged to Enable Unhindered Duties for Indian Diplomats

Vancouver - Following reports of attempts by Khalistan supporters to disrupt a consular camp organized by the Indian mission in Vancouver, New Delhi has reminded Canada of its obligation under the Vienna Convention to enable diplomats to carry out their duties.

After receiving assurances of heightened security for Indian diplomats, the government recently resumed certain visa services for Canadian nationals.

In response to the incident, a spokesperson from the Ministry of External Affairs stated, "Our high commission and consulates in Canada regularly organize consular camps. One such camp near Vancouver on November 12 aimed to provide life certificates to pensioners. Despite attempts by a few radical elements to cause trouble, the event was successfully held, with our Consul General not present at the site." The spokesperson reiterated the importance of nations respecting the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations to facilitate the discharge of diplomatic obligations by their diplomats.

Addressing allegations of an attack on the Indian community during Diwali celebrations in Canada, the spokesperson noted that Indian authorities had not received any complaints. He mentioned, "I think that was more in the nature of unrest between the two groups. To be honest, I don't think there has been any complaint that our consulate has received. I saw some social media reports."
