Canada will continue to oppose China’s “forced diplomacy”. This was announced by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a press conference in Ottawa on Wednesday, October 14.
“We will continue to work with China to advance Canadian interests and Canadian manufacturers. At the same time, we are determined to continue working with our allies to ensure that China’s approach to forced diplomacy and arbitrary detention of two Canadian citizens and citizens of other countries is not considered successful. tactics, “Trudeau said.
According to him, China’s current foreign policy “has brought significant tension to interstate relations.”
“We will continue to express our concern about the detained Canadians, about the protection of human rights in Hong Kong and the Changsheng province, where the Uighurs live,” added the Prime Minister of Canada.
Trudeau concluded that Canada “will continue to work with like-minded nations around the world to convince China that its approach to international relations is not productive for itself or for all of us.”
