There has been a new unexpected twist in the case of Gui Minhai, and this time, the Swedish Ambassador to China Anna Lindstedt is involved.
Gui Minhai was born in China and later became a naturalized Swedish citizen. He was a Hong Kong-based bookseller be
fore being sued in the Chinese mainland in 2015. That lawsuit strained relations between China and Sweden.
His daughter, Angela Gui, has recently detailed a bizarre account of her visit to Stockholm, which has
embarrassed the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Angela Gui, who grew up in Sweden, now live
s in Britain where she is studying for a PhD in history at university. She gave her account in a media interview last we
ek and made an announcement Wednesday on her blog. Gui said that Ambassador Lindstedt contacted her in mid-January, inviting her to go to Sto
ckholm to meet two Chinese businessmen, who Lindstedt trusted, to discuss a new approach to her father’s case.
Angela Gui said she went to Stockholm in late January where she met two Chinese businessmen in the presence of Lindstedt. In
her statement, she said that the two businessmen asked her to stop all media engagements and public comment in exch
ange for her father’s release or commutation. According to Gui, Lindstedt supported the plan and said t
hat if not, the relationship between Sweden and China would otherwise be further undermined.
Angela Gui said that after the meeting, she called the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs for confirm
ation. “They told me they hadn’t had the slightest idea this whole affair was taking place. They hadn’t even been informed the amb
assador was in the country,” she wrote. In her account of what happened, she not only gave details of the meeting,
but also described how she was feeling threatened and how the whole arrangement seemed suspicious.
ound on structural issues and look forward to hearing details about any progress that was made,” said Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council.
The Washington-based council has urged both governments to use this month to address their unresolved issues, he said in a statement.
The Chinese delegation said that creating a market environment of fair competition is in line with the general di
rection of China’s reform and opening-up, and therefore China will actively address relevant US concerns.
The two countries have agreed to take effective measures to promote the more b
alanced development of bilateral trade. China will make active efforts to expand im
ports from the US in agriculture, energy, manufacturing and services, which will help the country’s pursuit of high
-quality economic development and meet the people’s demand for a better life, the Chinese delegation said.
It’s clear that changes to the bilateral commercial relationship are underway, but b
ecause the issues are complex, it will take hard work and considerable time to resolve them, Allen said.
