'Canadian government expects full cooperation from Iranian authorities,' said Trudeau
Iran acknowledged that the Ukrainian airliner was brought down by its own armed forces
Ottawa: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, responding to Iran's statement that a missile shot down a Ukrainian airliner this week, said on Saturday that his government sought a full investigation and full cooperation from the Iranian authorities.
All 176 people on board, including 57 Canadians, were killed in Wednesday's crash after take-off from Tehran. Canada had said for several days it believed the plane was downed by an Iranian missile, but until Saturday Iran had denied this.
