Remarks of the Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Canada
2023-05-04 18:18

On May 4, Chinese Ambassador to Canada, H.E. CONG Peiwu met with the senior official of the Global Affairs Canada. Ambassador CONG set forth China's stern position and protested strongly on the Canadian side's threat to expel the relevant Chinese diplomatic and consular personnel based on rumors of the so-called "China Interference" hyped up by some Canadian politicians and media.

Ambassador CONG pointed out that China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs. The Chinese diplomatic and consular officials always fulfill their duties in accordance with the relevant international conventions and the Consular Agreement Between the Government of Canada and the Government of the People's Republic of China. In an attempt to make political gains and draw attention, driven by ideological bias, some Canadian politicians and media have been manipulating China-related issues, attacking and discrediting China. China strongly deplores and firmly rejects this.

Ambassador CONG stressed that China's diplomatic and consular officials' normal performance must not be smeared, and China's sovereignty, security and development interests must not be violated. Once again, China strongly urges the Canadian side to immediately stop this self-directed political farce, not go further down the wrong and dangerous path. Should the Canadian side continue to make provocations, China will play along every step of the way until the very end.
