China on Tuesday voiced its opposition to any organization or person making irresponsible remarks on the Hu Jia case, which the country has handled according to the law.
"China is a country under the rule of law ...In China, anyone who breaks the law will be punished by the law. It is the same in any country of the world," Liu said at a regular press conference, responding to a question concerning the case of the HIV/AIDS activist.
Punishment will be imposed on Hu Jia as well when he breaks the law, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said at a regualar press conference on Tuesday.
Relevant international organizations or people should be clearly aware of that. They should not make irresponsible remarks on China's judiciary and its handling of the case according to law, Liu said.
China to improve ties with Vatican on two conditions
China is willing to explore ways to improve bilateral relations with the Vatican on the basis of two principles, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said at a regualar press conference on Tuesday.
Namely, the Vatican should cut off its "diplomatic relationship" with Taiwan and stop interfering in China's internal affairs under the excuse of religion, said Liu.
China is always "sincere" about improving ties with the Vatican while insisting on two principles, he said.
