Q: Recently, some high-ranking officials in the Japanese Government once again made their accusation against China over the suicide of the official in the Japanese Consulate-General in Shanghai. Does China have any comment?
A: China's conclusion from the investigation on the suicide of the official in the Japanese Consulate-General in Shanghai was a serious and responsible one. At that time, the Chinese police inquired relevant officials in the Japanese Consulate-General in Shanghai according to law, and relevant facts have been verified. We have record on the inquisition, which was signed by Japanese officials. We express our strong indignation at the Japanese Government's disregard of the facts and their further move to purposely smear the image of China.
