Wang criticized some countries emphasizing the principle of sovereignty on the Ukraine issue while challenging China's sovereignty over Taiwan and the one-China principle to the point of deliberately creating tensions in the Taiwan Straits.
During their conversation, Xi noted that since the beginning of this year, bilateral relations have maintained a sound development momentum in the face of global turbulence and transformations.
On the protection of civilians, Zhang said that every effort must be made to reduce the harm to civilians caused by conflict.
Echoing the views of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Zhang said that "the spillover effects of the Ukraine crisis is having a major impact on the world, developing countries in particular."
Noting that China always views and handles China-Canada relations from a strategic and long-term perspective, Wang said the current situation of bilateral relations is not in the interests of both countries, calling on Canada to face up to the problems and cooperate with China.
