OTTAWA, Rajab 10, 1438, Apr 7, 2017, SPA -- Canada fully supports the U.S. air strikes in Syria, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday, adding that Canada condemns all uses of chemical weapons and will continue to support diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria, Reuters reported.

"Canada fully supports the United States' limited and focused action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against innocent civilians, including many children. Crimes committed by Syrian regime against its own people cannot be ignored," Trudeau said in a statement.
