Meanwhile, the arrival of a Canadian warship in the Gulf of Taiwan, several thousand kilometers away from our country, is a direct message to China. In recent times, the relationship between Canada and China is also going through a very bad phase.
Canadian warship has passed through the Gulf of Taiwan before
The Canadian warship also passed through the Gulf of Taiwan in September last year. Which China reacted sharply to. Apart from this, the presence of American warships in this area is also becoming a threat to China. Just a few days ago, the Eastern Command of China drilled live fire in the Gulf of Taiwan and told about its plans.

China threatened Canada to suffer the consequences
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said after these Canadian decisions that China strongly condemns this and has the right to respond further in the matter. Canada will be responsible for whatever the consequences. He said that trying to put any kind of pressure on China will never succeed.
