Mr. Speaker, I report to the House that today we brought in the Turkish ambassador to make it very clear that we would like to have a fair, open and transparent trial to demonstrate that justice can be done in these kinds of cases.
We do not condone terrorism in any way. A country has to be able to appropriately apply its judicial system. Because this is of such international significance, we think it is right for Canada to raise its voice to ensure that a fair trial is given.
We will do everything possible to try to deal with some of the grievances that have occurred in terms of the Kurdish people. That is something that has to be done through very careful negotiation over time.
