TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The foreign ministry's consular affairs office published a notice Tuesday saying that Canada has recently "arbitrarily detained" a Chinese national — a reference to Canada's arrest of Chinese executive Meng Wanzhou at the request of the United States.
It urged Chinese citizens to consider their personal circumstances and "fully assess the risks of going to Canada for tourism." It added that Chinese people should approach travel to Canada with caution.
The notice mirrored Canada's revision of its own travel advisory to warn of the "risk of arbitrary enforcement of local laws" in China.
Meng, chief financial officer of Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, is out on bail in Vancouver and faces possible extradition to the U.S.
