Not so cooperative?

“How do you go to canola farmers and relatives of the two (Canadian detainees) and say ‘Well, actually, notwithstanding all of this, we’re going to try to do whatever we can to help?’”


David McNaughton, Canada’s US ambassador, tells the South China Morning Post that unless the Canadians gets more cooperation from Washington over the arrest of Huawei’s CFO, Ottawa will withhold its cooperation on major issues. The arrest and potential extradition to the US of Meng Wanzhou has led to Chinese economic reprisals against Canada, such as blocking canola imports.
