"The Canadian side detained a Chinese citizen who, as Canada admitted, hasn't violated Canadian laws, at the will of another country for no reason. However, the Canadian side blamed China unscrupulously for taking mandatory measures against two Canadian citizens suspected of engaging in activities that jeopardize China's national security. I wonder whether the laws of other countries are still laws in the eyes of these Canadians. Treating 'rule of law' with double standard means disrespect of it. Ambassador Lu's article may have hit a raw nerve of some Canadians. We hope these people will think it over and correct their mistakes to prevent further adding to their pain."

Storyline


China urged Canada to abandon double standard on the rule of law, said a spokesman of the Chinese foreign ministry at press briefing in Beijing on Friday.

Spokesman Lu Kang made the comments on a signed article of Chinese Ambassador to Canada Lu Shaye.

The article pointed out the hypocrisy of some Canadians when dealing with the concept of "rule of law" by comparing two recent events -- Canada arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of the United States and China detained two Canadians suspected of engaging in activities that jeopardize China's national security.

Lu said the article touched a raw nerve of some Canadians.

Meng was detained in Vancouver on December 1 due to a request from the U.S. Former Canadian diplomat Michael Kovrig and business consultant Michael Spavor were detained in China on December 10 in separate cases.
