VIENNA CONVENTIONS:India and Canada



What is the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations?

The Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations is an international treaty formulated in 1961, which outlines the rules for diplomatic interactions between countries. Its main purpose is to facilitate peaceful international relations. Currently, 193 countries are parties to the Convention, making it a universally recognized framework.

What does Article 11.1 of the Vienna Convention entail?

Article 11.1 addresses the size and scope of diplomatic missions. It allows the receiving state to require that the size of a foreign mission be kept within reasonable limits, based on the conditions and needs in the receiving state unless a specific agreement exists.

Why are Canada and the US citing the Vienna Convention in their dispute with India?

Canada and the US are invoking the Vienna Convention to emphasize the protection and privileges that should be granted to their diplomatic personnel. This follows India's proposed actions which, according to Canadian officials, could strip immunities from Canadian diplomats, thus putting their safety and legal protection at risk.

What are the privileges and immunities provided under the Vienna Convention?

The Vienna Convention grants diplomatic agents immunity from the criminal, civil, and administrative jurisdiction of the receiving state. This includes immunity from arrest and detention as well as immunity regarding their official duties, ensuring they can perform their functions without facing legal actions from the host country.
