PM Justin Trudeau defends his much criticized comments after death of Cuban president Fidel Castro.

Justin Trudeau is facing criticism at home and abroad for his statement expressing “deep sorrow” about the death of Fidel Castro, ignoring his human rights violations.
Defending his much condemned comments on the death, Trudeau says that the former Cuban president Fidel Castro was a dictator, but that does not mean it was inappropriate to acknowledge his achievements at the time of his death.
Trudeau says it was a statement meant to mark the death of a former head of a country with which Canada has had a long relationship. He also says that he understands that some people who had been affected by the Castro regime would view things differently.
He says he never shies away from raising human rights, and that included doing it during his visit to Cuba.
