China’s Xi Jinping confronts PM Trudeau over ‘media leaks’

“Everything we discussed has been leaked to the papers, that is not appropriate. And that was not the way the conversation was conducted”

While on the ongoing South Asia tour, Canadian officials have not shied away from their scrutiny of China. At the G20 summit on Tuesday, Trudeau reportedly had expressed concerns to Chinese President Xi Jinping over China’s “meddling” in Canadian affairs, likely referencing the 2019 elections as well as the Chinese overseas police service stations.
In a viral video from the summit that has since made rounds on social media, Xi retaliated by confronting PM Trudeau about Canada’s “inappropriate” way of handling interpersonal relations between the nations. The Chinese President could be seen accusing Trudeau of ‘leaking” everything they talk about to media outlets.
