WINNIPEG, June 4 (MarketsFarm News) – The following is a glance at the news moving markets in Canada and globally.

– The Chinese Foreign Ministry has issued a travel warning for the United States, claiming Chinese visitors have been “interrogated, interviewed and subjected to other forms of what it called harassment by U.S. law enforcement agencies,” according to The Canadian Press. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued a separate travel alert for the U.S., citing high frequencies of shooting, robberies, and theft. Tightening visa restrictions from the Trump administration has impacted Chinese foreign students studying in the U.S. since 2017. “For some time, the U.S. has politicized normal China-U.S. educational exchanges using the China threat and Chinese infiltration as excuses,” said foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang.

– Though U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to apply a five per cent tariff on Mexican goods beginning June 10, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he expects to reach a deal before the tariffs are enacted. “There are signs that it matters to the U.S. officials that there’s a deal,” said Lopez Obrador. The tariffs are seen as punishment for allowing Central American asylum-seekers to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S.

– 35 Sudanese citizens were killed when security forces attacked a protest outside the Defense Ministry on Monday. The country’s official opposition rejected a proposal from the military to hold an election within nine months, following former president Oman al-Bashir’s ousting as President in April. The military council has ruled since Bashir’s overthrow, and has since canceled all agreements with the opposition, according to Reuters.
