Trudeau speaks for not defending LGBTQ rights in public

Ottawa: Premier Justin Trudeau was apprehensive while he wrapped up a nine-day international tour and reporters asked him about negotiations with Iranian Foreign minister and his resolution to not defend LGBTQ rights in public when with Senegalese President.

Trudeau said that Canada is able to get Senegal’s hold up for the seat for “a while” and he “always” raised voice for human rights with world leaders. He also articulated Canada’s grants for LGBTQ groups on an international level.
Trudeau said, “We will continue to work to ensure that people’s rights are respected at home and everywhere around the world”.
Trudeau said he “never” renounced human rights, while he was pressed to respond to why he didn’t take a chance to repeat his stance for LGBTQ privileges.
Trudeau told, “One of the things that Canadians understand is we need to engage constructively with the world, stand up firmly for our values, and look to help people as we improve conditions for people around the world”.
He assured, “I’ve never shied away from bringing up human rights with leaders and I will continue to do that strongly, in a way that moves the dial forward”.

Trudeau maintained he met with the Iranian foreign minister when the foreign minister Francois Champagne was conducting a bilateral meeting with Iranian minister Javed Zarif, as “made a promise to families in Canada to do everything I could to make sure that they get answers”.
Trudeau held that champagne insisted upon his Iranian counterpart the importance of flights’ black boxes and called for an independent investigation regarding the Ukraine plan shot down due to missile strikes to point out the culprit.
Trudeau said, “I went by to impress upon the foreign minister of Iran how important it was that we work together and we ensure that that investigation is complete”.
