At a regular Foreign Ministry press conference on December 7, a reporter from the Wall Street Journal asked whether China had received a specific response from the United States regarding the reasons for Mengs detention and the charges against him.
In response, spokesman Geng Shuang said: What I can tell you is that so far neither the Canadian side nor the United States has provided any evidence to the Chinese side that any party has violated the laws of the two countries.
The reporter questioned whether executives in China should be worried because they fear that they will be the target of retaliation from the Chinese side.
Geng Shuang responded that China has always protected the legitimate rights and interests of foreigners in China according to law. Of course, they should also abide by Chinas laws and regulations.
