Beijing, May 31: Chinese foreign ministry has on Friday said the country hopes Canada understands the consequences of supporting the United States in conflict and also doing at US bidding, as Vice President Mike Pence called on Beijing for the immediate release of two detained Canadian.

According to Reuters news reports, when asked about VP Pence comments that the US president would discuss with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping about the release of the detained Canadia during their meeting next month on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Tokyo, Japan, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang indirectly suggested Canada should be responsible for its problems with Beijing.

Without elaborating, the spokesperson said, “We hope that the Canadian side will come to understand the full consequences of pulling chestnuts from the fire on behalf of the United States, and not inflict more harm on themselves.”

On Thursday, VP Pence has met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa during which both discussed the issue of detained Canadians, where they hold discussions related to technology giant Huawei and China trade issue.

The United States called for the release of two detained Canadian citizen in Beijing, after joining and supporting Canada into this case, in what they believed that it was tit-for-tat arrests followed by the arrest of Huawei chief executive officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou in Canada.
