Q: What is China's comment on the decision made by the ROK's Seoul High Court to turn down Japan's extradition request for Chinese national Liu Qiang on January 3?
A: On January 3, the ROK's Seoul High Court made the decision to reject Japan's request of extraditing Liu Qiang to Japan. China welcomes the result of the case. Liu Qiang has been properly arranged and will return to China soon.
