Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng on Meng Wanzhou's Return to China: Nothing Can Stand in the Way of the Chinese People's March Forward

2021/10/13

In an interview with The Point of CGTN on 11 October 2021, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng said that with the relentless efforts of the Chinese government, Meng wanzhou returned home safely after over 1,000 days of illegal detention. Her return on the eve of China's National Day was a particularly special gift on the occasion. The Chinese authorities always had Meng Wanzhou in mind during her nearly three years of illegal detention. President Xi Jinping paid personal attention to the situation. During his phone call with U.S. president, President Xi raised the issue explicitly and urged the United States to properly resolve it as soon as possible. Of course, the support of the 1.4 billion Chinese people has been a tremendous factor. A netizen commented that Meng was detained and released because of China's rise. Our competent authorities and diplomatic and consular missions in the United States and Canada also worked very hard. After Meng's return, the Foreign Ministry has received many flowers, especially from university students. It is a big endorsement of our people-centered diplomacy.

Le said that Meng Wanzhou was freed from not only the electronic tracker, but also the shackles of hegemony and coercion, and it shows that nothing can stand in the way of the Chinese people's march forward. I have noted that Frédéric Pierucci, a former senior manager of the French company Alstom, commented that Meng's case is likely to be a historic turning point, encouraging other countries to stand up and fight back in the face of hegemony and power politics. I believe he is right.
