Justin Trudeau claimed that Canada has shared "credible accusations" regarding the murder of Khalistani terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar with India "many weeks back". However, the MEA had on Thursday cleared that Canada has shared no information regarding the murder of Nijjar. On September 18, Trudeau asserted India's role behind the murder of Khalistani terrorist Nijjar, which has given rise to tensions between the two countries. India rejected the accusations, stating them as "absurd" and "motivated".

In a press release, the Ministry of External Affairs stated that Trudeau made the same kind of accusations to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and they were "totally rejected". Earlier on Thursday, Trudeau called the Indian Government to "take the matter seriously" and work with Canada to ensure accountability. He said that he had a "frank conversation" with Prime Minister Modi on the matter.

In Nepal, 1,10,000 teachers have staged a three-day strike in opposition to a parliamentary education reform bill, causing significant disruptions in public schools. The bill, which grants local governments control over schools and prohibits teachers from joining politically affiliated groups, prompted thousands of demonstrators to march toward the Kathmandu parliament. In response, anti-riot police employed force. This ban on political affiliations is particularly noteworthy due to Nepali teachers' historical involvement in the country's democracy movement. Political parties have sought to enlist teachers as activists since Nepal's inaugural parliamentary elections in 1959. However, concerns persist that teachers' political engagement may compromise education quality.

She reaffirmed Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh as integral parts of India and denounced Pakistan's interference in India's affairs. Gahlot accused Pakistan of spreading "baseless and malicious propaganda." She highlighted Pakistan as a haven for proscribed terrorist entities and called for action against 2011 Mumbai attack perpetrators. India also spotlighted minority violence, making a reference to the Jaranwala incident and Pakistan's Human Rights Commission report revealing 1,000 minority women facing abduction, forced conversion, and marriage.
