Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expects full cooperation of the Iranian authorities in the situation with the crash of the Ukrainian Boeing 737-800, spokesman for the Prime Minister Cameron Ahmad said on Saturday.
"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," as statement reads on Ahmad's Twitter.
