Ottawa (People's Daily) - Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement issued after US-led strikes against Syria that Canada supports the decision by the US, the United Kingdom and France to bomb targets in Syria over the Assad regime's alleged use of chemical weapons.

"Canada condemns in the strongest possible terms the use of chemical weapons in last week's attack in eastern Ghouta, Syria," Trudeau said in a statement issued from Lima, Peru, where he is attending the Summit of the Americas.

"Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people," the statement read.

"We will continue to work with our international partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Those responsible must be brought to justice."

Trudeau has previously ruled out any Canadian participation in military action.
