Posted April 7th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement today on U.S. strikes in Syria:
“Canada fully supports the United States’ limited and focused action to degrade the Assad regime’s ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against innocent civilians, including many children.”
“President Assad’s use of chemical weapons and the crimes the Syrian regime has committed against its own people cannot be ignored. These gruesome attacks cannot be permitted to continue with impunity.”
“This week’s attack in southern Idlib and the suffering of Syrians is a war crime and is unacceptable. Canada condemns all uses of chemical weapons.”
“Canada will continue to support diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria.”
