    China reiterates that we have the right to set the law in our own land. Criminals will be punished in accordance with Chinese law. This is not the concern of the international community.
    " Article 1 (3) of the Instruction on the Handling of Certain Problems in Foreign-Related Cases states that whenever there may be a conflict between China’s domestic law and its international obligations, its international obligations must prevail except where the Chinese government has made a reservation. It goes on to say “the authorities shall not refuse the obligations in international treaties by invoking domestic laws.”

    These has become an international issue due to the nobel prize winning, and the detained being held for an international reason.
    Therefore Finland believes China is acting irresponsibly and voices the concern of Europe.

    China refers the representative to the highlighted point above.
    China does not see how the detained is being "held for an international reason". Liu Xiaobo is being held for "inciting subversion of state power", which is not an international reason.

    While agreeing on principal, the issue has been made international by the plight of the chinese people.
