Canada Soccer said on Tuesday that the men's national team would face Panama on June 5 in Vancouver in the national team's first home match since March when they qualified for the Nov. 21-Dec. Canada has provided Ukraine with M777 towed howitzers, which fire 155mm shells. 18 World Cup in Qatar. Twelve of the sick people were hospitalised, the FDA said without elaborating. The cancelled Iran friendly had drawn plenty of opposition from politicians and the families of the Canadians who died aboard a Ukrainian passenger plane that was shot down near Tehran in January 2020 by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. A spokesman for South Korea's ministry of defence confirmed that Ottawa had made the request, but would not elaborate further saying"no official proceedings are under way related to the request". A special Canadian forensic team had produced a report in mid-2021 that accused Iran of incompetence and recklessness over the downing of the Ukrainian passenger plane. They should be thrown away," it said.

Iran criticised the report as being"highly politicized". "We are actively pursuing a plan to provide 100,000 rounds to Canada," the official told SBS. They should be thrown away," it said. The report found that while the shooting down of Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 had not been premeditated, it did not absolve Iranian officials of responsibility for the incident. Iran admitted it shot down the airliner shortly after takeoff from Tehran and blamed a"disastrous mistake" by forces on high alert during a confrontation with the United States. South Korea is a major manufacturer of 155mm ammunition, with its K9 self-propelled howitzer dominating the international market. Canada Soccer cancelled the Iran game last week in a one-paragraph statement that gave no reason for calling off the friendly, but later in the day explained its reasoning, saying the match had become"significantly divisive". "Based on investigation findings to date, consumption of imported fresh organic strawberries is the likely source of the outbreak," the agencies said in a statement. The national governing body also said at the time it would conduct a thorough review of its processes for the hosting of international matches and would consult with all stakeholders moving forward. South Korea has provided humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and has shipped non-lethal items including bulletproof helmets and medical kits.
