香港中评社记者:据媒体报道,加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚省高等法院近日公布了孟晚舟的律师向法院提交的证据材料。这些材料主张,美国起诉孟晚舟涉嫌“银行欺诈”的关键证据存在重大遗漏和刻意隐瞒,美方系有意误导加政府和法院。孟晚舟案的引渡程序已被“毒化”,毫无公正性可言,加法院应终止孟案引渡程序。请问中方对此有何评论?

汪文斌:我们注意到有关报道。加拿大政府有必要向公众解释美方提供的证据存在的问题,当然,我们听说美方正阻挠加拿大政府这么做。加拿大法院披露的相关证据充分表明,孟晚舟事件是美方滥用加美引渡条约、为了打压中国高技术企业和华为公司而一手炮制的严重政治事件。加方应美方要求无理拘押孟晚舟,导致当前中加关系陷入困境。加拿大为美方火中取栗,实际上是被美方利用了,是以加拿大公众的利益为代价,为美国少数政客的政治目的和美国企业的商业利益服务。这不仅是中方的看法,国际社会以及加、美不少有识之士对此都看得清清楚楚。

必须指出的是,孟晚舟事件拖得越久,对中加关系的危害就越大。希望加方充分认清美方政治图谋,从事情本身是非曲直和自身利益出发,尽快妥善解决孟晚舟事件,消除中加关系发展的障碍,以实际行动推动两国关系重回正轨。

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.
