The Canadian Foreign Ministry said that Ambassador John McCallum met with Michael Spavor, a business consultant, two days after visiting another detained Canadian Michael Kovrig, a thinning tank employee.

“We are clearly standing up for our citizens who have been detained, trying to find out why trying to work with China to show that this is not acceptable, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Toronto Citytv on Friday. 19659002] Secretary of State M Ike Pompeo also noted the arrests “unacceptable.”

Chief Meng Wanzhou, Huawei, was released in Vancouver on Tuesday in the wake of extradition to the United States. She is accused of violating US sanctions against Iran.

Beijing threatened Canada with “grave consequences” if she was not released.

Ottawa has repeatedly said that the arrest was not political but rather a legal process in accordance with an extradition agreement with Washington.

In an interview with CTV News on Sunday Trudeau expressed concern about the effects of the US-China trade war, which has pursued a free trade with the latter.

“One of D one that we must understand is when there is a conflict like this … where we talk about an escalating trade war we talk about significant clashes between the world’s two largest economies, “he said.

“There will be unintended consequences around the world, including in Canada.”

Canadian companies operating in China have not reported significant difficulties in the current diplomatic crisis.

However, the manufacturer of Kappa Can Ada Goose this week may postpone the opening of a new store in Beijing for “construction reasons”.
