BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Saturday he had a frank conversation with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the G20 leader’s dinner on Friday and told him Canada would always stand up for human rights.

Trudeau said he also spoke with Russian President Valdimir Putin on Friday and asked him to release the Ukrainian sailors who were seized along with their ships by Russia last month.
