[Global Times global network reporter Wu Yuanchun] on August 17, 2020, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian presided over a regular press conference. The following is part of the transcript. < p > < p > reporter asked: it is understood that the British Columbia High Court of Canada will hold a trial on the Meng Wanzhou case on August 17 local time to discuss the disclosure of evidence and information involved in the case. At present, public information shows that Canadian law enforcement agencies are suspected of violating regulations and abusing procedures in planning and implementing the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, including collusion with the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI), deliberately delaying time at Vancouver Airport, and conducting improper search and interrogation of Meng Wanzhou. Meng’s lawyer team urged the Canadian court to disclose more evidence related to the case. What is China’s comment on this? < / P > < p > Zhao Lijian: China’s position on the Meng evening boat incident is consistent and clear. At present, the relevant evidence that has been disclosed fully shows that the United States and Canada abuse the bilateral extradition treaty and arbitrarily take compulsory measures against Chinese citizens, which seriously infringes on the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. The purpose of the US side is to suppress China’s high-tech enterprises and Huawei, and Canada has played the role of an accomplice to the US side. This is a serious political incident. This is not only the view of China, but also clearly seen by the international community, as well as many people of insight in Canada and the United States. What I want to emphasize is that the Chinese government is determined to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of its citizens and enterprises. At the same time, we also support relevant enterprises and individuals to take up legal weapons to safeguard their rights and interests. We once again urge the Canadian side to take seriously China’s solemn position and concerns, immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou and let her return to China safely.
