She made the remarks in response to a letter by Iranian-Canadians Congress on the country's policy regarding Iran, adding that Canada will certainly support regulations passed based on international norms.
Although the JCPOA is not a perfect agreement but it helps ward off real threat to international peace and security, she said.
