Chinese Embassy spokesperson's remarks

Q: Today, Canadian Foreign Minister Freeland made statement demanding that China reveal how many Chinese citizens were killed, detained or went missing in Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989, China uphold its human rights obligations and release people who have been unjustly or arbitrarily detained. And today Prime Minister Trudeau in Vancouver expressed concerns about China's behavior in regards to human rights and called for better respect of human rights, for ceasing its actions against minorities like the Uighurs in western China. Do you have any comment on these remarks?

A: The Chinese government has already drawn a clear conclusion on the political disturbance in the late 1980s. The great achievements we made in the past 70 years since the establishment of the People's Republic of China have spoken volumes that we chose the right development path and it is endorsed by our people. The Chinese people will continue to advance along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics.

The statement and remarks of Canadian government and leader made gross accusations on China's human rights and religious situation, and baselessly criticized China's Xinjiang policy. It flagrantly interferes in China's internal affairs, tramples the basic norms governing international relations. The Chinese side firmly opposes it and has made stern representations to the Canadian side. Any attempt to interfere in China's internal affairs or destabilize our country is doomed to fail.
