Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau launched a scathing attack on China on Friday, over the detention of two Canadian citizens in Beijing, and defended Canada’s arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou at the request of the United States that has sparked a diplomatic row between China and Canada.

According to Reuters, Trudeau told the reporters in the western Canadian city of Regina in Saskatchewan, “It is unfortunate that China has arbitrarily and unfairly detained two Canadian citizens.”

Two of the Canadian citizens – Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, were arrested in China amid the arrest of Huawei CFO on December 1 in Canada’s Vancouver.

In an article in the Ottawa-based Hill Times newspaper, Ambassador Lu Shaye was on Wednesday, quoted as saying that Canadian’s demands for the release of two of its citizens reflected “double standards” out of “western egotism and white supremacy”.

When asked about the comments, Trudeau said the Canadian government has simply acted in accordance with the country’s rule of law.

According to reports, Trudeau said, “Canada is a country of the rule of law. This is something that we know and we value.” He added saying, “We have a justice system that is not subject to political interference.”
