|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang's Remarks on Chinese Loggers Sentenced in Myanmar|
Q: According to media reports, some Chinese nationals were sentenced to over 10 years in prison by the Myanmar side for illegal logging in Myanmar. How does China comment on this?
A: Right after the Myanmar side arrested and detained some Chinese engaged in illegal logging in Myanmar early this year, the Chinese side has lodged multiple representations on different levels and through various channels, asking the Myanmar side to consider the actual conditions of those Chinese nationals, deal with this case in a lawful, reasonable and justified manner so as to conclude the case properly and return those people to China as soon as possible.
We are highly concerned about the ruling made by the Myanmar side, and have lodged representations with it. We ask the Myanmar side to take China's concerns seriously, take all the factors into account and properly handle this case.
