Canada should take the incident of its diplomat’s “Wuhan Bat” T-shirt as a warning to ensure that similar things are not repeated, with the Chinese Foreign Minister saying that the Canadian Embassy has accepted Later it was “nuisance” and he regretted it.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a press conference on Monday that China had noted the Canadian embassy’s insights into China. She admitted that the Canadian diplomat’s behavior angered the Chinese people.
“Canada should take this as a warning to ensure that such incidents do not happen again,” Wang said.
The Canadian embassy in China issued a notice on Sunday in which the embassy severely regretted the incident. It “offended public sentiments in China”.
“These T-shirts were not made to make a political or other statement. The statement said that we regret their humiliation.
Chad Hensler, who ordered a T-shirt with a bat-like background with the words “Wu-Han” on him, sparked outrage among Chinese netizens and officials. He called on the Canadian government to punish the diplomat as soon as possible.
A spokesman for the Canadian Foreign Service called last week’s incident a “misunderstanding”. However, Wang did not believe him and said that forgiveness was not confirmed. Canada should give a clear explanation to China as soon as possible.
A person familiar with the matter said that the Canadian diplomat involved was cheating the Chinese T-shirt maker. Since May, when he ordered, he had made a conscious plan to hide his evil intentions.
In May 2020, he was looking for companies that manufacture T-shirts with cultural symbols. After contacting a Chinese e-commerce company, he was hesitant to provide an image printed on a T-shirt. It was not until July, when the Chinese company said it urgently needed money, that it provided the picture, the insider said.
