China expels Canada's Consul from Shanghai as countermeasure to Ottawa's move

| @indiablooms | 09 May 2023, 06:04 pm

Beijing: Beijing has declared Canadian consul in Shanghai Jennifer Lynn Lalonde persona non grata as a reaction to Ottawa's expulsion of a Chinese diplomat from Toronto, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

"As a reciprocal countermeasure in reaction to Canada's unscrupulous move, China decides to declare Jennifer Lynn Lalonde, consul of the Consulate General of Canada in Shanghai persona non grata, who has been asked to leave China no later than May 13," the ministry's statement read.

On Monday, Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly said Ottawa declared Chinese diplomat in Toronto Zhao Wei persona non grata for alleged intimidation of conservative lawmaker Michael Chong after he sponsored a motion to accuse China of genocide against Uyghurs.
