Against the backdrop of tensions in diplomatic relations, Cong Peiwu, the Chinese Ambassador to Ottawa, exchanged views with Pierre-Marc Johnson, the former prime minister of Quebec.
Against the background of ongoing diplomatic tensions between Ottawa and Beijing, on Tuesday, April 13th, Chinese Ambassador to Canada Peiwu Peiwu and former Quebec Prime Minister Pierre Mark Johnson had a polite exchange. This was a courtesy exchange. . As part of the conference organized by the Montreal International Relations Organization, the conference is a non-profit organization that claims to be an international forum in Quebec. However, politeness does not prevent the incident from turning into a conversation for the deaf and mute. If the ambassador is cautious at the beginning of this video conference, he must assert this diplomatically. “China has always believed that dialogue is better than confrontation”, He first brought constant and expected denial of all criticisms against his country.
The conference titled “China-Canada Relations, Which Way Should I Take?” The conference organized under the initiative of the Chinese Embassy made it possible for people to face the three major issues that plague China-Canada relations. The first is the fate of Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, the two Canadians who acted secretly three weeks ago, awaiting judgment. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated on March 19, “Their arbitrary detention and lack of transparency in the judicial process are totally unacceptable”.
When asked about these questions, Peiwu claimed “China’s judicial system has strong evidence that they have stolen state secrets and passed them on to foreign powers.”. Pierre-Marc Johnson pointed out to him that since they were sentenced to prison, the two men could neither choose their lawyers nor benefit from the regular support of the Canadian consular authorities. Expressed satisfaction, he was satisfied with it. “All their rights are protected”.
When the ambassador chose to attack the Canadian legal system in turn, the tone of the communication became sharper, and the case of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei, was resolved. Huawei was arrested in December 2018 due to U.S. judicial requirements. “In this matter, Canada’s accomplice in the United States has the responsibility to find a solution to her release because she did not violate Canadian law.”, He asserted.His interlocutor replied «MI Meng has a lawyer. Compared with the two Michaels, her detention conditions are very special.. Before the final interrogation for extradition to the United States at the end of April, Meng Wanzhou continued to live in his luxury residence in Vancouver, only to be equipped with an electronic bracelet.
