China plays on the divisions of democracies, declares Trudeau

MISE & Agrave; DAY

Ottawa | China is playing on the divisions of democracies, denounced Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in an interview with Global Television, calling on Western countries to “work together” to better resist these pressures. & nbsp;

“We need to work better to resist together and prevent China from playing our divisions against each other,” Trudeau said.

“We are competing against each other and China is playing us very smartly against each other in an open market, ”argued the Canadian Prime Minister. The West should instead “display a united front”, he pleaded.

Justin Trudeau announced on December 8 a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics, following in the footsteps of the States United, UK and Australia.

Canadian athletes will take part in the Games, which will begin on February 4, but no Canadian government representative will visit China.

There are many sources of tension between Canada and China, which are just emerging to emerge from an unprecedented diplomatic crisis linked to the arrest, in December 2018, of the daughter of the founder of the Chinese telecoms giant Huawei in Canada.

Meng Wanzhou and two Canadians who were detained in China were released in September after three years of detention in what has been called “hostage diplomacy.”
