China's New Envoy To Canada Delivers Familiar Message On Justice, Rights

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 22 Nov, 2019

    OTTAWA - Beijing has a new representative in Canada, but the stern message to Ottawa remains the same.

     

    Chinese ambassador Cong Peiwu is reiterating his country's call for Canada to release Meng Wanzhou, an executive with Huawei Technologies arrested nearly a year ago.

     

    Relations between Ottawa and Beijing have been fractious since early last December, when Canadian authorities in Vancouver took Meng into custody following a request from the United States over allegations of violating sanctions on Iran.

     

    Cong said in a roundtable interview in Ottawa today that Meng's arrest and pending extradition to the U.S. amount to arbitrary detention.

     

    Soon after Meng was arrested, Beijing detained two Canadians, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, on allegations of undermining national security.

     

    The developments are widely seen in Canada as retaliation for the detention of Meng, whose extradition hearing begins in January.
