Canada’s Diplomatic Army: Too Big for Comfort?
Arindam Bagchi, the mouthpiece for the Indian External Affairs Ministry, has dropped a bombshell, emphasizing that Canada’s diplomatic troop size in India outnumbers India’s presence in Canada. New Delhi’s clear message? Balance the scales. Bagchi highlighted that the numbers need to match for a harmonious diplomatic relationship. While he anticipates a shrinkage from Canada’s end, he underscored New Delhi’s commitment to ensuring the security of foreign diplomats on Indian soil. In contrast, he expressed hopes that Canada would extend the same courtesy to Indian diplomats.
