Australia conveys Trudeaus concerns to India, UK Sikh MP Calls for justice

New York: After Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's allegations of a potential link between India and the killing of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, both Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong and British Labour Party MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi expressed concerns.

Wong addressed the issue at a press conference in New York, where she said Australia is closely monitoring the developments surrounding this controversy.

Meanwhile, in response to the escalating tensions, British Labour Party MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi expressed concern, stating that many "anxious, angry, and fearful Sikhs" had contacted him. Dhesi revealed that he was in touch with the UK government to ensure that justice is delivered.

"Look, these are concerning reports, and I note that investigations are still underway. As I've said, we are monitoring these developments closely with our partners, and we'll continue to do so. Australia has raised these issues with our Indian counterparts," stated Penny Wong.

Australia's stance on the matter aligns with its commitment to upholding the sovereignty of all nations and respecting the rule of law, she added. When asked if Australia intended to raise the issue with Japan, a fellow member of the Quad alliance along with India, Wong reiterated the importance of respecting the sovereignty of all countries.

This development comes in the wake of strained relations between India and Canada after Prime Minister Trudeau's accusations. Canada recently expelled a top Indian diplomat in response to Trudeau's allegations.

Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau had made the explosive allegations while addressing the Canadian Parliament, asserting that Indian agents were behind the fatal shooting of Khalistan Tiger Force chief Hardeep Singh Nijjar. He claimed that Canadian national security officials had credible reasons to believe that "agents of the Indian government" were responsible for Nijjar's killing.

Trudeau's allegations have not only strained bilateral relations but also raised questions about international cooperation and diplomacy in addressing sensitive matters related to terrorism and national security.
