Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau and agreed to expand trade and economic linkages as the two leaders took stock of India-Canada relations.
"Useful exchange between PM @narendramodi and Canadian PM @JustinTrudeau at Schloss Elmau. Leaders discussed bilateral ties and agreed to expand trade and economic linkages, cooperation in security and counter-terrorism, as well as P2P ties," the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said.
The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said both leaders took stock of the India-Canada friendship and discussed ways to further strengthen it across various sectors.
"Prime Ministers @narendramodi and @JustinTrudeau meet on the sidelines of the G-7 Summit in Germany. They took stock of the India-Canada friendship and discussed ways to further strengthen it across various sectors," PMO tweeted. This is the first meeting following the diplomatic row over the Canadian PM's remarks on farm laws protests in New Delhi.
India had taken up this matter with the Canadian authorities and conveyed that the comments pertaining to the internal affairs of India were unwarranted and would damage bilateral relations. This is their first meeting after Trudeau's 2018 India visit.
