More pressure from Moscow, more support for Ukraine, increasing NATO deterrence while seeking diplomatic solutions: Chancellor Scholz's list of topics at his meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau was long.
They strongly condemned Russia's war of aggression, called for Russia's immediate withdrawal of its armed forces, and stressed the urgent need to establish humanitarian corridors and aid supplies for civilians. They agreed that Russia should continue to pay a heavy price for the war and that Ukraine should continue to be supported. For this purpose, the coordination between the aid countries should be further expanded.
Prime Minister Trudeau and Chancellor Scholz discussed the close ties between Canada and Germany and decided to further deepen cooperation in areas of mutual interest, including climate protection, clean energy and natural resources.
