China and Germany
In the first case, the German foreign minister called Chinese President Xi Jinping a “dictator”. What China responded to with a summons from Beijing to the German ambassador in the country. The idea was to reprimand him for the statement.
Minister Annalena Baerbock made the observations in an interview during a visit to the United States.
When asked about Russia’s war against Ukraine, she said: “If Putin wins this war, what signal would that send to other dictators in the world, like Xi Jinping, the Chinese president?”
China’s Foreign Ministry said the country was “very dissatisfied” with Baerbock’s comments and that it “firmly opposes” them.
India and Canada
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday that the country’s intelligence agencies were actively investigating allegations linking the Indian government to the murder of Hardeep Singh Nijjar in the Canadian state of British Columbia in June. this year.
India quickly dismissed the claim as absurd.
In response, the Indian government expelled a Canadian diplomat from the country, further worsening diplomatic relations between the two G20 members.
The case has hampered negotiations on a potential bilateral trade agreement and could lead to more serious consequences between the two countries.
