China Review News: According to media reports, the Canadian British Columbia Supreme Court recently published the court files submitted by Meng Wanzhou's legal team. The files show that the United States purposely misled the Canadian government and court by improperly and significantly tailoring the key elements of evidence to support its charges of "bank fraud" against Meng Wanzhou. These proceedings have been poisoned and can no longer be reasonably regarded as fair and the Canadian court should stay them, according to the files. What is your comment?
Wang Wenbin: We note relevant reports. The Canadian government should explain to the public the problem with the US evidence. Of course we've heard that the US is discouraging it to do so. The evidence published by the Canadian court clearly reveals that the case of Meng Wanzhou is a serious political incident manufactured by the US to oppress Chinese hi-tech firms including Huawei by abusing its extradition treaty with Canada. At the behest of the US, Canada detained Meng Wanzhou without cause, which led to the current difficulties in China-Canada relations. Canada is acting as a cat's paw for the US. It has been used by the US to serve the goals of a few American politicians and the interests of American businesses. This is a clear fact to not only China, but also people with vision in the US, Canada and beyond.
I must point out that the longer the Meng Wanzhou case drags on, the greater harm it will bring to China-Canada relations. We hope Canada can see through the US political agenda, properly resolve this incident based on its own merits and Canadian interests, remove obstacles in China-Canada relations, and bring the bilateral relationship back on track through concrete actions.
