Remarks on the So-called Arbitrary Detention Issue by Spokesperson of the Chinese Embassy in Latvia

As for the cases of Canadian citizens Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, China has made clear its position on many occasions. They are suspected of engaging in activities endangering China's national security, and Chinese judicial organs handle the cases independently according to law. It must be pointed out that arbitrary detention is what Canada did to Ms. Meng Wanzhou, not what China has done. The Canadian side's attempt to gang up on China is totally futile and counterproductive. We urge the Canadian side and relevant countries to reject double standards, earnestly respect China's judicial sovereignty and stop making irresponsible remarks.

As for the consular visits, at the request of the Canadian side, the competent Chinese authorities have arranged, in accordance with law and as pandemic prevention and control conditions allow, officials from the Canadian embassy in China to have a virtual meeting with the Canadian citizens. During the process, the Canadian side strictly followed China's pandemic prevention regulations. On the basis of mutual respect and accommodating each other's concerns, competent Chinese authorities will continue to handle consular visits to the Canadian citizens in accordance with law and epidemic situation.
