Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a year-end interview with local media that Western democracies must cooperate with China and “have made us fight each other.”
In an interview aired late Saturday, he told Global Television.
The Prime Minister describes Western countries competing for access to the Chinese market, using, for example, the sale of Canadian and Australian beef to the rising middle class of China, Beijing often conditioned. I made it possible to decide.
“We continue to compete, and China occasionally competes very well with us in a competitive way in the open market,” he said.
The Prime Minister said Western nations need to “show a united front and prevent China from splitting us at an angle” and use “forced diplomacy.”
Relations between Canada and China plummeted in December 2018, with two former diplomats Michael Cobb and businessman Michael Cobb in arresting Canada for a US decree by Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou. Detained Canadians and blocked some of their imports from Canada.
All three were released in September after Meng reached an agreement with a US prosecutor on suspicion and ended the battle for her surrender.
Earlier this month, Ottawa joined US-led nations at the diplomatic boycott of the February Winter Olympics in Beijing over China’s human rights records.
Ottawa is also considering banning Huawei from 5G networks.
