|Qin Gang Refutes the Fallacy that China Tries to “Interfere” in the Canadian Election|
On March 2, 2023 local time, Foreign Minister Qin Gang met with Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly on the sidelines of the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in New Delhi. Qin Gang refuted the fallacy that the Chinese Embassy in Canada tries to “interfere” in the Canadian election.
Voicing China’s firm opposition, Qin Gang said the accusation of so-called “China's interference” in Canada is utterly groundless and is nothing but unfounded denigration. China has never meddled in other countries’ internal affairs, and opposes any interference in other countries’ internal affairs. The Chinese Embassy in Canada has abided by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and stays committed to promoting China-Canada relations and exchanges and cooperation in various fields. The Canadian side should take concrete measures to ensure the normal operation of Chinese diplomatic missions in Canada and prevent rumors and hype from disrupting bilateral relations.
