OTTAWA (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday it wants the Canadian government to stop allowing meat shipments to China after bogus export certificates were discovered. The announcement comes just four days before China and the United States are due to sit down to work on settling a trade dispute that has caught Canada in the crossfire. An investigation into Canada’s export certificates has revealed as many as 188 “counterfeit” veterinary health documents and the existence of “obvious safety loopholes,” the Chinese Embassy in Canada said in a statement on its website. China has taken urgent preventive measures and requested the Canadian government to suspend the issuance of certificates for meat exported to China. “We hope the Canadian side would attach great importance to this incident, complete the investigation as soon as possible and take effective measures to ensure the safety of food exported to China in a more responsible manner,” it added.
Bibeau said in her statement that the CFIA had been working closely with industry and Chinese officials on the matter. “CFIA is investigating this technical issue and has informed appropriate law enforcement agencies. This incident is specific to export certificates to China. Export certificates to other countries are not affected,” Bibeau said. Bibeau did not say whether the CFIA would suspend the certificates, but a Canadian government source said the issue was a “technical” and not a political one, and that a “temporary suspension” may be announced.

On Monday, Meng’s lawyers urged Canada’s justice minister to withdraw extradition proceedings against Meng, but received no immediate response.

Earlier this month, Reuters reported exclusively that China planned to boost inspections of imported Canadian meats and meat products. A Canadian Agriculture Ministry notice said the Canadian Embassy in Beijing had been told that Chinese customs agents would open all containers of Canadian meat and meat products, and that in some cases 100% of the contents would be inspected.
