Trudeau said Canada will continue to be a part of global efforts to fight worldwide terrorism and will work to ensure that "there are consequences for anyone engaged in terrorist hostage taking".
Greenpeace also expressed hope that Trudeau won't let the garbage become Canada's legacy in the Philippines.
He added that this summit is the principal platform to discuss issues related to the Pacific region and that his country's accession to the group would be a natural progression towards Canada's participation in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).
Trudeau also explained that Canada was not able to collect the garbage back due to legal restrictions on the part of their country which he noted were already resolved.
"I'm happy to commit to you all now that Canada is very much engaged in finding a solution on that", he said.
The East Asia Summit is a larger ASEAN grouping focused on security that brings together leaders from 18 countries, including the U.S., China and Russian Federation.
He told the room that Rae will engage in diplomatic efforts and identify ways in which Canada can support the response to the situation and the plight of the Rohingya minority.
"As a Pacific nation, Canada has long understood the importance of a close relationship with Southeast Asia", said Trudeau.
"North Korea must immediately cease all activities that go against its worldwide obligations and United Nations Security Council resolutions", he said.
CANADIAN Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed Tuesday that he mentioned to President Rodrigo Duterte Canada's concern over the alleged extrajudicial killings in the Philippines' brutal war on illegal drugs.
