S Jaishankar meets Canadian counterpart Mélanie Joly, discusses issue of safety of Indian diplomats amid 'Khalistani' events

Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar met his Canadian counterpart Mélanie Joly in Jakarta last week when he highlighted the importance of ensuring safety of diplomats.

He made the remark at a time when several anti-India events were reported for the past couple of months which involved Khalistani supporters.

According to sources, India on Monday raised concerns over threats to its diplomats in posters being circulated in Canada with information on a pro-Khalistan rally to be held on July 8. The posters contained threats to the Indian Ambassador to Canada and the consulate general in Toronto, reports ANI.

Following the meeting, Jaishankar tweeted: "Met Canadian FM @melaniejoly  in Jakarta."

He said: "Discussed the Indo-Pacific and our economic cooperation. Underlined the importance of ensuring the security of our diplomats. And the need to firmly combat incitement to violence."
