China’s state-owned Global Times newspaper said the brewing conflict between India and Canada about the possible involvement of Indian actors in the assassination of a Sikh leader in British Columbia reveals “the vulnerability of the so-called value-based alliance system led by the US.”

The dispute hit the world stage when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced to the House of Commons that his government is “actively pursuing credible allegations” linking Indian government agents to the murder of Sikh separatist leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar. No further proof has been provided so far.
