Canada will continue to stand up against Chinese human rights abuses

Justin Trudeau

CANADA will continue to stand up against Chinese human rights abuses, said Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday.

While Trudeau said he that he is not looking to escalate the delicate situation with China, he nevertheless vowed to stand up against China’s “coercive diplomacy” and human rights abuses.

“We will stand up loudly and clearly for human rights all around the world, whether it is talking about the situation faced by the Uighurs, whether it is talking about the very concerning situation in Hong Kong, whether it’s calling out China for its coercive diplomacy,” Trudeau said in a news conference.

Tensions are already high between China and Canada, with Chinese envoy to Ottawa, Cong Peiwu, warning Trudeau not to grant asylum to Hong Kong pro-democracy protestors.

Cong said the “health and safety” of the 300,000 Canadian passport holders in Hong Kong could be jeopardized by these “violent criminals”.

      Hope world leaders hear the message clearly, Today China ambassador threatens country people within Canada. Action speaks louder, lip service has not helped this world. If the message of the china ambassador is gone un-address, tomorrow it will come again. Poisonous Snake is out of control, humanity is in crisis. The earlier world realizes better for the human race. Live the short term goal and work for humanity. Now only the combined action of world leaders can save humanity.

      The world was silent for Tibetan, Uighur Muslims – Organization such as UN have become United Nexus. So only last hope world leader sees the writing on the wall and takes action before no return point.

      Anyone opposing oppression of China becomes Violent Criminals…?
