Ukraine plane crash in Iran could bring Trump and Trudeau closer

The downing of a Ukrainian airliner carrying at least 63 Canadian citizens could encourage collaboration between President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as their governments investigate the incident – even though the two leaders haven’t always seen eye to eye.

U.S. and Canadian officials said the Ukrainian International Airlines flight was downed by an Iranian surface-to-air missile late Tuesday near Tehran, Iran, killing all 176 passengers aboard. 

Iran disputes shooting down the plane and has called on Canadian and U.S. investigators to release evidence of a missile. 

Although some of Trump’s critics have suggested the plane was “collateral damage” amid an escalation in U.S.-Iran tensions, Trudeau has said it was “too soon” to draw any conclusions.

When asked by reporters at a Thursday press conference if he thought the Soleimani strike led to the downing of the jet, Trudeau replied, “I think it is too soon to be drawing conclusions or assigning blame or responsibility in whatever proportions.”
