CHINA said it will lift its ban on Canadian pork and beef exports, in a sign that relations between the two countries may be thawing, reports London's Financial Times.

'Good news for Canadian farmers today,' announced Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. 'Pork and beef exports to China will resume.'



Trudeau credited Dominic Barton, the recently appointed Canadian ambassador to China, and the country's meat industry for 'reopening this important market for our meat producers and their families'.



The policy reversal ends a four-month-long trade dispute with Beijing that many believe stemmed from Canada's arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou on US fraud charges. China initiated the restrictions after claiming to have discovered falsified export certificates for Canadian meat.



The news comes on the heels of China's Foreign Ministry appealing to Canada to immediately release of Ms Meng Wanzhou, reported Reuters.



Ms Meng has been detained in Vancouver since December last year. She is charged in the United States with bank fraud, and is accused of misleading HSBC Holdings about trade with Iran.
