China summons Canadian diplomat over statement on Taiwan

China is conducting military exercises around Taiwan.

China’s foreign ministry said on Friday that it has summoned Beijing-based Canadian diplomat Jim Nickel over Canada’s involvement in a statement issued by the foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) countries.

It is the latest in a series of diplomatic complaints made by Beijing after the G7 called on China on Wednesday to peacefully resolve tensions around the Taiwan Strait.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Xie Feng summoned Nickel on Thursday and urged Canada to “immediately rectify its mistakes” or “face all consequences” on the Taiwan issue, according to a statement published on Friday by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
