Justin Trudeau, Hassan Rouhani on Ukrainian plane


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the phone after Tehran admitted to having “unintentionally” downed a Ukrainian airliner last week. Addressing the media here on Saturday, Trudeau said he told Rouhani that Iran’s admission was an important step in providing answers for families, but more must be done, reports Xinhua news agency. “A full and complete investigation must be conducted,” Trudeau said. “We need full clarity on how such a horrific tragedy could have occurred.” During their conversation, Rouhani promised a further investigation into the circumstances surrounding the plane crash. Rouhani said that the investigation by the Iranian military found that the missiles that caused the downing of the plane were fired due to “human error”. (IANS)
