Former Canadian Diplomat detained in China

A former Canadian Diplomat has been detailed in China, this comes just week after the CFO of Huawei was arrested in Canada for alleged US sanctions violations. The US-China trade tensions are now spilling over into other areas, as both countries now engaging in a tit for tat.

Chinese President Xi Jinping met with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 summit  and Trump had announced that both countries had reached a truce. The tensions however, are escalating even further.

According to edition.cnn.com a Chinese court announced a ban on the import and sale of almost all iphones models.

The banned on iPhone was mostly specific to older iPhone using the older operating system. This new escalation is worrying as it looks like each country is now targeting specific individuals, diplomats, officials, organisations from each others country.
