Joly echoed Jaishankar’s sentiments, reflecting on the frank exchange that transpired during their meeting. “At the 2024 Munich Security Conference, Dr S Jaishankar and I had a frank discussion on Canada-India relations and the current global issues, including Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine,” she remarked in a post on social media platform X.

The meeting between Jaishankar and Joly took place against the backdrop of allegations made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding India’s alleged involvement in the death of a separatist—a claim vehemently refuted by the Indian government as baseless and motivated. The encounter served as a platform for both nations to address lingering tensions and explore avenues for constructive engagement.

In addition to the significant India-Canada dialogue, Jaishankar’s itinerary at the sidelines of the conference was replete with engagements with an array of global leaders, each conversation contributing to the mosaic of international diplomacy. His discussions ranged from strategic partnerships with the United States and the United Kingdom to regional cooperation with Bangladesh and global health initiatives with the World Health Organization.
