Ottawa denies involvement in Khadr talks

‘Media reports to the effect there would be a Canadian agreement are not correct’

by

Officials in both Canada and U.S. are denying reports U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had arranged to speak with Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon about Omar Khadr’s repatriation to Canada. “Media reports to the effect there would be a Canadian agreement are not correct,” said Catherine Loubier, a spokesperson for Cannon’s office. “There is no such agreement. Omar Khadr is facing serious charges in the U.S. These serious charges would have to be addressed in the U.S.” CNN is reporting Clinton and Cannon had arranged to discuss the case Wednesday night, with further negotiations scheduled for Friday. But a spokesperson for Clinton said “There was no such call.”
