OTTAWA, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday had a phone conversation with his British counterpart Theresa May, Trudeau's office said.

The two heads of government discussed the upcoming G20 summit in Buenos Aires and underscored the importance of the rules-based international trading system, said the office in a news release.

It said that the two sides also discussed the Brexit negotiations, with the Canadian leader reaffirming his commitment to ensuring a "seamless transition" of their bilateral relations, particularly in terms of free trade, following Britain's withdrawal from the European Union.
