Canada’s Trudeau demands from Iran independent probe into downed airliner

Reuters – Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he had “impressed upon” Iran’s foreign minister on Friday that a complete and independent investigation into the shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane in January had to be carried out.

“The promise I made to Canadians was to find answers for them and ensure that Iran leads a full investigation with the international community … and holds to account the people responsible for this and that is my focus,” Trudeau told reporters after meeting Mohammad Javad Zarif earlier on Friday.
