Politic, Travel Comments Off 3

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will finally be able to leave India after a technical problem in his aircraft was fixed, the country’s press secretary has said. Mr Trudeau was set to fly on Sunday, following a tense meeting with Indian PM Narendra Modi at the G20 summit. But he had to stay back for two more days after his plane experienced technical difficulties. He is now expected to leave for Canada on Tuesday afternoon.

The technical issue with the plane has been resolved. The plane has been cleared to fly,” Mohammad Hussain, press secretary of the Canadian prime minister, told Indian news agency ANI. In a statement sent to the BBC, Canada’s Department of National Defence on Monday confirmed that the prime minister’s aircraft – a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) CC-150 Polaris with the tail number ’01’ – suffered a “maintenance problem” stemming from a “component that will have to be replaced”.
