On January 22, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a regular press conference. Hua Chunying answered questions from reporters.
Q: The United States has informed Canada that it will formally propose the extradition of Meng Wanzhou. What is your comment?
Hua Chunying: China has repeatedly expressed its solemn position on this matter. Anyone with normal judgment can see that the Bangladesh Evening Boat case is not an ordinary judicial case. The Canadian side arbitrarily abuses the bilateral extradition treaty between Canada and the United States, which constitutes a serious violation of the security and legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens. We urge the Canadian side to release Ms. Meng Wanzhou immediately and ensure her legitimate rights and interests. We also strongly urge the United States to correct its mistakes immediately, to revoke the arrest warrant for Meng Wanzhou and not to submit formal extradition requests to Canada.
