During the US-Canada "2+2" Ministerial Dialogue last weekend, the Canadian Foreign Minister said that the arrest of Chinese executives was based on the principles of the rule of law and the obligations of international treaties. Both the US and Canada are countries that abide by the rule of law and rules. US Secretary of State Pompeo said that "illegal detention of Canadian citizens is unacceptable and they should be released".
At a regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 17th, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said in reply to a question from the Global Times that China has repeatedly clarified its principled position on the illegal detention of Chinese citizens by the Canadian side at the request of the United States. "What I want to say is that when so many things happen, it is surprising that the United States and Canada still claim to be"abiding by the rule of law and rules". In my opinion, this is no different from the modern version of the "Emperor's New Clothes". No matter what grand excuses they put on their legal clothes, they do not write much about ignoring the facts, disdaining the rule of law and making the world laugh.
Hua Chunying said that as you can see, over the past few days, many Canadian citizens with a sense of justice have written to the Chinese Embassy in Canada, or directly through the Canadian media, publicly criticizing the Canadian government for its unreasonable and illegal practices. Many Americans, including the famous economist Sachs, have also published articles pointing out the nature and harm of this problem. China strongly urges Canada to immediately correct its mistakes, release Chinese citizens illegally detained, effectively safeguard the legitimate and legitimate rights and interests of the persons concerned, and strongly urges the United States to immediately revoke the arrest warrant for the persons concerned.
