Canada has postponed its trade mission to India, scheduled for October, due to strained relations between the two countries, according to Reuters. The decision comes following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's criticism of Canada's handling of recent protests by Khalistani supporters and the holding of a "Khalistan referendum" in different cities in Canada. The matter is also said to have reportedly canceled a formal bilateral meeting with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau during the G20 Summit in New Delhi.
