The pranksters said they had fooled Trudeau into believing they were speaking with climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Days before the recording, Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 had been shot down after taking off from the Iranain capital of Tehran, amid escalating tensions between Iran and the US. "Maybe you can help?" the pranksters said.

The Office of the Prime Minister on Tuesday said the pranksters had requested the call days after Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 was shot down after taking off from the Imam Khomeini Internation Airport in the Iranian capital of Tehran on January 8.

Trudeau added: "I can certainly understand that people can feel very, very strongly about him". "We can create a world where there is a place for everyone, for whites and black, Christians and Muslims, for Trump and Putin, for you and me, for [South Park characters] Terrance and Philip".

"No, that is exactly, exactly the right perspective", Trudeau said.

The comedians cut in to tell the prime minister that instead of participating in NATO, Canada should "drop your weapons, pick flowers, smile at nature".

Trudeau replied that he "also dreams of a world in which soldiers are not necessary", saying, "But we don't live in that world - yet - unfortunately".

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen detail 'utter grief' of losing son
Speaking in a joint interview with People magazine, Chrissy explained: "You learn how to cope with it". Legend added that he didn't realise they could both "experience grief and also share it".

Taking the increasingly unusual comments in stride, Mr Trudeau applauded the fake Ms Thunberg for her "perspective" and "passionate words".

This week, an 11-minute video was uploaded to YouTube, showing two Russian pranksters posing as 17-year-old Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg.

After he expresses his belief that Thunberg's 2019 visit to Montreal ahead of the country's federal election "helped define" the outcome in terms of climate change, Thunberg interrupts to say, "But leave North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

The impersonator then says he thinks Meghan Markle "manipulates him".

Trudeau responds: 'In every relationship, there are complicated concessions and compromises that are the art of living together.

"I would be happy - I'll ask my team to try and figure out how we can connect you", he says. "Because I don't have their direct coordinates with me now".

Trudeau quickly ended his farewell call. "Were they not in South Park?".
