New Delhi: Canada on Monday said the earliest possible departure of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his delegation from New Delhi is Tuesday late afternoon and that the country’s armed forces are continuing with their best efforts to bring them back home.

The prime minister and his delegation, who were to leave Delhi after the G20 summit on Sunday, are stranded here due to technical issues with their aircraft.

Earlier in the day, a source in the know said that a ferry aircraft to fly them back is expected to land at the Delhi airport at around 10 pm on Monday.

In an e-mailed statement to media, the Canadian Prime Minister’s office said the Canadian Armed Forces continue their best efforts to get the delegation home.
