U.S. State Department Issues Travel Advisory for China Due to ‘Exit Bans’ AFP Getty 3 Jan 2019

A delegation of MPs and senators is heading to China this week, and the detention of two Canadians in the Asian nation is expected to be a major topic of discussion.

Washington has accused her of fraud for helping evade USA sanctions against Iran.

"We don't know what law the Chinese authorities are talking about", said Malley, who once served on U.S President Barack Obama's national security council.

The US has urged its citizens to "exercise increased caution" when travelling to China as they could face arbitrary detention there, a move that came amid tense relations between the countries dominated by trade row and the recent American-requested arrest of a high-profile Chinese executive in Canada.

A group of Canadian lawmakers travelling to China this weekend will use the trip to push for the release of two Canadians detained there since last month, says a Conservative MP in the delegation.

Perhaps it is time to stop viewing this part of the world exclusively as the golden goose that will pad (or even save) the western economy, and instead for what it truly is: a region governed by the Communist Party of China, which has little regard for human rights in search of world domination.

They were barred from leaving China in November.

The U.S State Department has called for the release of the two Canadians, while Germany, France, the European Union and Australia have also issued supportive statements.

December 12: China's foreign ministry says it has no information about Kovrig, but says the organization he worked with - the International Crisis Group - was not registered in China, making its activities in the country illegal. Kovrig and Spavor remain in custody.

Those comments don't offer any new information for Kovrig's distressed family and friends, who still don't know why or for how long he's being detained, said Robert Malley, president of the Crisis Group.

China maintains its "level 2" travel advisory category it was assigned when the State Department revised its travel warning system a year ago despite the updated warning.

"The message from Global Affairs Canada. was that it would be better for us to go rather than to cancel", said Cooper.

Beijing has only given vague details about the detention of the two Canadians, and hasn't drawn a direct link to Meng's arrest.

The two detained Canadians have only had one consular visit since their arrests.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has repeatedly called on China to release the men.
