U.S. President Joe Biden said Canada and America will work together to secure the safe release of two Canadians — Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig — detained in China.

Biden’s remarks came after a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Tuesday afternoon.

“Human beings are not bartering chips,” Biden told reporters. “We’re going to work together until we get their safe return. Canada and the United States will stand together against abuse of universal rights and democratic freedom.”
