China: Canada to give clear explanation over 'Wuhan Bat' shirt
Topics: CHINA CANADA WUHAN
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a press briefing after a Canadian foreign ministry spokesperson claimed the customized shirts with the "bat" pattern and "WUHAN" lettering were nothing more than a "misunderstanding."
Wang said Canada's claims of a "misunderstanding" are unconvincing, stressing that some mainstream Canadian media also admitted that the shirts are printed with bat-like patterns.
"We can hardly believe that the individual concerned, as a high-level diplomat who has worked and lived in China for many years, would make such a low-level mistake unconsciously," said Wang. ■
