 China does not allow detained Canadian citizens to see lawyers? Response of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs


According to the official website of the Ministry of foreign affairs, the spokesman of the Ministry of foreign affairs, Lu Kang, held a regular press conference in March 4th.

A reporter asked: On the one hand, Meng Wanzhou brought a lawsuit against Canada; on the other hand, China did not allow Cummingkai and Michael to meet lawyers. Isnt this a double standard?

Lu: In the case of two Canadian citizens mentioned by you, my colleagues and I have made it clear that China has strictly fulfilled its obligations under the Sino-Canadian Consular Agreement.

At the same time, I think you already know that Cummingkai and Michael, two Canadian citizens, are suspected of engaging in activities that endanger Chinas national security. The relevant Chinese authorities have taken compulsory measures against them in accordance with the law. I believe you know very well that Chinas approach is no different from that of other countries in the world in dealing with such cases involving national security.

Reporter asked: Can you confirm whether these two Canadian citizens were allowed to see lawyers?

Lu: As I said just now, China has made necessary consular briefings to the Canadian side in accordance with the law and fulfilled its obligations under the Sino-Canadian Consular Agreement.
