Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue's Remarks On Recent Intrusions into Foreign Diplomatic Missions and Schools

2004-10-27 00:00

Q: Recently the incidents of illegal North Korean trespassers intruding into foreign embassies and schools cropped up frequently. Some illegal trespassers even resorted to violent means. What's your comment on this?

A: Recently, unidentified people intruded into foreign diplomatic missions and schools in Beijing in quite a few incidents. Some of them even resorted to violent means, threatening the personal security of Chinese and foreign staff. These acts severely violated Chinese laws, undermined China's social order and stability and seriously disturbed the normal order of these foreign embassies, consulates and schools, posing an immediate threat to their lives and property safety.

It should be pointed out that these "intrusions into embassies or schools" were masterminded by some so-called foreign religious or human rights organizations as well as individuals. The Chinese side will seriously punish the "snake-heads" organizing these acts. For those illegal DPRK trespassers caught within the Chinese territory, China has all along been handling them appropriately in accordance with domestic and international law and humanitarian principles.
