India After Election: Ottawa Presentation
A Presentation on:
INDIA AFTER THE ELECTIONS:
Current Indo-Canadian Relations And Security Issues in the Region
His Excellency Peter F. Walker
Canadian High Commissioner to India
Date: Wednesday, December 1, 1999
Time: 12:00 - 14:00
Place: Conference Room (202)
1 Nicholas Street
Organized by: South Asia Partnership Canada
More than a year has passed since India and then Pakistan carried out their
nuclear tests. While the US has waived sanctions on India, Canada still
maintains the hard sanctions it imposed on both countries at that time.
India recently held elections and a fragile coalition government led by the
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is currently in power. This BJP led government
is trying to bring forward more populist issues but the wave of
fundamentalism it initially espoused is still strong. In Pakistan, the
military has just overthrown the democratically elected government of Nawaz
Sharif and dissolved the national and provincial assemblies.
Given this rather unstable scenario in the region, this presentation by H.E.
Mr. Walker will give participants an overview of the current situation. A
question and answer session will follow the presentation.
