Trudeau thanks allies for rescuing Canadian family kidnapped in Afghanistan

PAKISTAN CANADA SECURITY | 13 de octubre de 2017

Mexico, Oct 12 (efe-epa).- The Prime Minister of Canada Thursday expressed his gratitude to the country's allies for their help in rescuing the family of a Canadian man who was kidnapped and held hostage since 2012 by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

During his visit to Mexico, which will last until Oct. 13, Justin Trudeau told reporters that he would like to thank Canada's allies and friends for their work in achieving a positive resolution to the five-year hostage situation.

"We're pleased that the ordeal that they've been through these past years has finally come to an end," the prime minister said at a joint press conference with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at the National Palace in Mexico City.

The Pakistani military Thursday carried out an operation to free Joshua Boyle, his American wife Caitlan Coleman and their three children, after receiving a tip-off from the United States that the family had been transferred from Afghanistan to Pakistan.

Trudeau assured that Canada would continue to work with its allies and would maintain contact with the Boyle family.

The premier added that Canada wanted to offer as much help as possible to the family so that the situation would return to normal.

In a statement released Thursday in Ottawa, Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said that the Canadian government was relieved that the Boyle family was released and thanked the US, Afghanistan and Pakistan for their joint efforts in the rescue mission.
