Q: In an interview last week, Chinese Ambassador to Canada Lusaye said that if Canada banned Huawei from participating in the 5G project, it would bear the corresponding consequences. Whats your comment on this? Why does China warn other governments about the consequences of decision-making?
A: Did you read Ambassador Lushanos interview carefully? I understand what he means is not that China interferes in the decision-making of the Canadian government. As you all know, Huawei is the worlds leading supplier in the 5G field. There must be losses if it does not cooperate with Huawei.
Q: Please clarify the question just now about Chinese Ambassador to Canada, Lushano. I understand that you just said that if Canada does not use China 5G technology, it will bear the commercial consequences. The Chinese government has not threatened the Canadian side. If the Canadian side makes such a decision, it will face political, diplomatic or other consequences.
A: You have always been so concerned about this matter. Have you heard any threats from the Chinese government? It is Canadian officials, not China, who put the threat on their lips. We have never spoken of any threat. We are just reasoning with the Canadian side.
On the other hand, the current situation of Sino-Canadian relations inevitably has a great impact on Sino-Canadian exchanges and cooperation. This is what we do not want to see. The responsibility is totally absent from China.
Ambassador to Canada: If the Canadian government prohibits Huawei from participating in the 5G project, it will surely have consequences.
Ambassador Lu: Ive been worried that Canada will make the same decision as the United States, Australia and New Zealand. I think that decision must be unfair because their accusations are unfounded.
