Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the country would “not rest” until Iran was held accountable for shooting down a civilian airliner.

“I had a chance to sit with some of the families of the victims,” the prime minister said Saturday at a press conference. “They’re hurt, angry, and grieving. They want answers. They want justice. What Iran has admitted to is very serious. Shooting down a civilian aircraft is horrific. Iran must take full responsibility. Canada will not rest until we get the accountability, justice, and closure that the families deserve.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Trudeau, 48, did not specify what actions Canada could take against Iran, but Ukraine has demanded Iran to compensate them for the 176 people killed on board. “We expect from Iran assurances of their readiness for a full and open investigation, bringing those responsible to justice, the return of the bodies of the dead, the payment of compensation, official apologies through diplomatic channels,” the Ukrainian president said.

63 Canadians were killed in the tragic downing of the passenger plane. 82 were Iranian, 11 were Ukrainians, 10 were Swedes, four were Afghans, three were Germans, and three were British nationals.

On Saturday, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, blamed the US, in part, for the incident.

“A sad day,” Zarif said. “Preliminary conclusions of internal investigation by Armed Forces: Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”
