Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, his government’s focus is accountability and justice for the victims of the Ukrainian airliner that Iran says it shot down accidentally.

Trudeau on Saturday acknowledged Iran’s admission, saying his government remained focused on closure and justice for the families of the victims, adding that Canadian investigators will continue to cooperate with Iran.

“This is a national tragedy, and all Canadians are mourning together,” he said.  

“We will continue working with our partners around the world to ensure a complete and thorough investigation, and the Canadian government expects full cooperation from Iranian authorities,“ Trudeau said in the statement tweeted by communications director Cameron Ahmad.

On Wednesday all 176 people on board, including 57 Canadians, were killed in a Ukrainian Ailiner 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.
