Chinese consul-general calls Trudeau ‘running dog’ of US

Toronto: Li Yang, the Chinese Consul General in Rio de Janeiro, has slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau allegedly for ruining the friendly ties between the two countries.

He alleged that Trudeau has turned Canada into a “running dog of the United States”.

“Boy, your greatest achievement is to have ruined the friendly relations between China and Canada, and have turned Canada into a running dog of the US. Spendthrift!!!” Li Yang tweeted.

This comes a day after China had announced sanctions against two American religious-rights officials and a Canadian MP in response to western countries’ sanctions on Beijing over the issue of human rights abuses in Xinjiang province.

Those targeted by the new sanctions by China include Gayle Manchin, chairwoman of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, and its vice-chairman Tony Perkins; Canadian MP Michael Chong and members of the Canadian Commons subcommittee on international human rights, South China Morning Post reported.

Recently in a press briefing, Trudeau slammed China’s treatment of two of its nationals there, saying it threatens both ‘respect for the rule of law’ and Beijing’s relationships with Western nations.
