He pledged to remain in close contact with Prime Minister Trudeau, fostering an environment of cooperation in charting the way forward.

In summary, the leaders of the United Kingdom and Canada have united in their call for restraint and adherence to established legal norms as the India-Canada diplomatic standoff unfolds. Their commitment to peaceful dialogue and the pursuit of resolution stands as a testament to the value of diplomacy in today's complex global landscape.
