Justin Trudeau renews his veiled attacks on Donald Trump and the United States. Passengers killed in crashed Ukrainian Boeing
by mistake by Iran on Wednesday would still be alive without the recent escalation of tensions in the region, the Canadian Prime Minister said on Monday.

The international community has been "very, very clear on the need to have a nuclear-free Iran" militarily but also "to manage the tensions in the region which are also provoked by the actions of the United States," said Trudeau. in an interview with the Global chain. "I believe that if there had been no tension and an escalation recently in the region, these Canadians would be at home with their families at the moment," added Trudeau, referring to the 57 Canadians killed in the accident. .

Justin Trudeau also said he "obviously" would have liked to have been warned in advance by Washington of the drone attack that led to the elimination of General Soleimani.

Nuclear deal ends and strikes Soleimani

Iran admitted on Saturday that it had “mistakenly” shot down Ukraine International Airlines’s Boeing 737-800 shortly after takeoff from Tehran on Wednesday.

The chronic tension between Iran and the United States has accelerated since Washington's exit from the Iranian nuclear deal. Tehran attacked tankers, an American drone and then an Iraqi base in late December, where an American contractor died. The United States retaliated on January 3 with the elimination of an important Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, in Iraq, an action followed by Iranian reprisals with missile strikes against two American military bases in Iraq on January 8, a few hours before. that the Boeing be shot down.

The issue of Washington's indirect liability has also been debated in the United States since the tragedy. Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg, in particular, said that "innocent civilians have died because they were in the middle of a loan for an unnecessary military rendering".
