Canada's PM Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party secured 158 out of 338 electoral districts while the Conservatives secured 119 seats. Trudeau will now seek support from smaller factions such as the leftist New Democrats and the separatist Bloc Quebecois.

Meanwhile, SAARC's informal foreign ministers' meeting due to take place on September 25 at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has been cancelled over Pakistan's objection on who will represent Afghanistan at the meet.

In another key development, the Taliban's foreign minister has asked the UN for permission to address world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.
