|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Remarks on Protests Against a US Film Which Defames Islam|
Q: Demonstrations against a US film which defames Islam are still going on, leading to bloodshed in many countries, and the situation is still unfolding. What is China's comment?
A: China always holds that different civilizations and religions should carry out dialogues and exchanges, respect and treat each other equally. We oppose any action that defames Islam and offends the Muslims. We believe that the sanctity of religion allows no blasphemy and vilification. We also hope that relevant countries will protect the safety and property of diplomatic missions and staff in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
