Zhao Wei, a Chinese official, was ordered to leave Canada on Monday after being branded “persona non grata” by the country.
In retaliation, China on Tuesday demanded that Canada’s diplomat in its Shanghai Consulate, Jennifer Lynn Lalonde, be expelled.
Beijing issued a statement that read, “China reserves the right to further react.”
Each diplomat has five days to leave the respective nations.
Due to claims of alleged Chinese political intervention in Canada, ties between Ottawa and Beijing have significantly deteriorated as a result of the censures.
After opposition member Michael Chong accused China of violating human rights, Canada accused China of pursuing him and his family in Hong Kong.
Canada summoned China’s ambassador last Thursday to reaffirm that it would not put up with meddling in its internal affairs.
