Canada’s Trudeau votes against relations with Iran

June 14, 2018

TEHRAN – On Tuesday afternoon, Canada’s Liberal cabinet rose to vote on a Conservative motion to reverse the country’s long-stated goal to improve relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran, Toronto Sun reported.

The government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decided to side with an opposition motion in parliament demanding that Ottawa “immediately cease all negotiations or discussions” on restoring diplomatic relations with Iran.

Trudeau campaigned on restoring diplomatic relations with Iran and this motion calls for the government to “abandon its current plan and immediately cease any and all negotiations or discussion with the Islamic Republic of Iran to restore diplomatic relations.”
