Canada has accepted the nomination of a new Chinese ambassador, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters on Thursday, describing the move as a step forward amid a major dispute between the two nations, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Freeland spoke a day after Ottawa unveiled business consultant Dominic Barton as its new envoy to Beijing. China has blocked imports of meat products and canola seed from Canada and charged two Canadian men with spying.
