OTTAWA (Reuters) -- China warned it will take "forceful measures" if Canada interferes in Taiwan, a week after it emerged that a delegation of Canadian parliamentarians was planning to visit the island later this year to explore trade opportunities.

China claims Taiwan as its territory under its "One China" principle and objects to foreign politicians visiting the island. Democratically governed Taiwan rejects China's claims.
