Chinese Government Initiated Dialogue to Release Two Canadians Held under Custody
Chan Kung

Canadian Ambassador to the United States Kirsten Hillman stated on September 26 that the Chinese government initiated the dialogue to release two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, taken into custody almost three years ago by China. Analysts believe that this is not the result of Canadian diplomatic efforts, but that China is satisfied with the success of its hostage diplomacy strategy.

It is more likely that China is taking advantage of the mentality of the United States and Canada. Canada is eager to take the two hostages back home, while the United States may wish to understand the situation. China has won the game, especially before the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, and this carries multiple significances.
