In addition to her tweet, she also posted a video. “Everything we determined has been leaked to the newspaper that’s not appropriate,” Xi remarked, speaking via an interpreter. “And that’s not the way the conversation was handled if there is sincerity on your part.”

There was a free, candid, and open talk, the Canadian Prime Minister is heard saying, and there would be issues where the two countries differ. “We will continue to help…work productively together but there will be many areas we will disagree on,” Trudeau stated.

Let’s first create the conditions, Xi Jinping says at the end of the video. After their short exchange, the two leaders shook hands.

During his brief conversation with Xi on the sidelines of this week’s Group of 20 (G20) meeting in Indonesia, Trudeau expressed “serious concerns” about alleged Chinese interference in Canada.

The two leaders spoke about North Korea and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and Trudeau “also raised our serious concerns around interference activities in Canada,” according to a readout from the office of the Canadian Prime Minister on Tuesday.
