Uyghur Times translated headlines and essential parts of major Chinese state media to update our readers with the latest Chinese disinformation campaign against the U.S. and Canada.
People's Daily: "No force can stop China's progress."
The Communist propaganda said, "On September 25, Chinese citizen Meng Wanzhou returned to the motherland on a chartered plane by the Chinese government. This is the result of the strong leadership of the Party Central Committee, the result of the unremitting efforts of the Chinese government, the result of the strong support of the entire Chinese people, and a significant victory for the Chinese people...
The U.S. accusation of Meng Wanzhou's so-called fraud is pure. Fabricated..Meng Wanzhou's safe return to the motherland fully demonstrates that the Communist Party of China, the 1.4 billion Chinese people, and the great People's Republic of China will always be the strongest backing for Chinese citizens."
Xinhua: "Meng Wanzhou finally returned home safely because the country behind her was called China."
Xinhua published a very emotional op-ed titled "The Wan Zhou (means "late Boat" in English ) returns to the voyage, with twists and turns, but also infused with warmth and demonstrating strength: After 1028 days and nights, with the unremitting efforts of the Chinese government, in the expectation of hundreds of millions of relatives in the motherland, Meng Wanzhou finally returned home!"

Global Times Editorial: Meng Wanzhou was released with "not guilty," which is very important!
"Meng Wanzhou pleaded not guilty, and Huawei does not accept huge fines or compensation. This is the bottom line of justice. Meng Wanzhou personally and Huawei were unable to confront the state apparatus of the United States and Canada, so the Chinese government stood up from the very beginning and carried out continuous and unremitting efforts for Meng Wanzhou's release."
Huxijin, Editor-in-chief of the Global Times, wrote on Twitter, "More than 60 million people watched live streaming of #Meng Wanzhou's arrival in Shenzhen. Yes, Chinese people regard Meng regaining freedom as the victory of justice, and we believe China's powerful national strength has shaped this result."
Tencent News highlighted Chinese state power in its article, "The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated 60 times that the U.S. has violated the rights and interests of Chinese citizens".
