China's Embassy in Canada urges Canada to release Meng Wanzhou immediately

China Daily | Updated: 2019-01-30 03:19

"The US files a request to the Canadian side for the extradition of Ms. Meng Wanzhou, the Chinese Embassy in Canada firmly opposes and strongly protests over such kind of action," according to a statement issued by the spokesperson of China's Embassy in Canada on its website.

"The Meng Wanzhou case is by no means an ordinary judicial case, but a serious political incident. The US has been using state power to tarnish and crack down on specific Chinese companies in an attempt to strangle their lawful and legitimate operations. Behind such practices are deep political intentions and manipulations. The US and Canada abused their bilateral extradition agreement and took compulsory measures against a Chinese citizen for no reason. Such actions seriously violate the legitimate rights and interests of the Chinese citizen. We urge Canada to take China's solemn position seriously, immediately release Ms. Meng Wanzhou and ensure her lawful and legitimate rights and interests, and stop risking its own interests for the benefits of the US," the statement said.
