China has no interest in and will not interfere in Canada's internal affairs, Beijing said on Wednesday.
Foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning made the remarks at a press briefing on Wednesday in response to a question about Canadian President Justin Trudeau's appointment of an independent special investigator to look into alleged interference in Canada’s elections.
"China has always opposed any country interfering in other countries' internal affairs," Mao said. "We have no interest in and will not interfere in Canada's internal affairs."
It was ridiculous for some people in Canada to spread unfounded rumors and lies and make an issue out of China, she said.
