London/Ottawa, Apr 21 (IBNS): Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday concluded his tour to the United Kingdom, where he tried to strengthen the bilateral ties between the two nations, media reports said.

Trudeau had attended the Commonwealth Summit in the UK on Thursday.

At the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), Trudeau had underlined his government's commitment to address climate change, protect oceans and develop economy in pursuit of job creation.

Trudeau said in the CHGM that Canada will become a Commonweath Blue Charter Champion, which calls for a coordinated action to promote the sustainable use of coastal and ocean resources.

Canada has also pitched in the advancement of human rights and the improvement of lives of LGBTQ2 people.

Speaking about the UK tour, Trudeau said: "The UK is among Canada’s closest friends and most important partners. We unite in our shared history, family ties, and unwavering commitment to democratic values. We will continue to set the stage for an even closer economic partnership, and create greater opportunities for citizens of Canada and the UK alike."

He said: "CHOGM is a unique and valuable forum that brings leaders from every corner of the globe together. I thank my Commonwealth counterparts for the productive discussions over the last few days.

"Working together, we can play an important role in addressing the most pressing challenges of our time – like fighting climate change, eradicating poverty, and building a truly gender equal world.”

Trudeau had also met other Commonwealth leaders Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda, Uhuru Kenyatta, President of Kenya, Filipe Nyusi, President of Mozambique, and Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa.
