China - Q&A - Situation of Peng Shuai (19 nov. 21)


Q : With regard to Peng Shuai: is the French government expressing doubt on the safety of the tennis player made famous by the Rolland-Garros tournament? Is it possible for Paris to disregard this situation?

A : We are concerned by the lack of information on the whereabouts of tennis player Peng Shuai, which is worrying the international community and the sports community.

We call on the Chinese authorities to implement their commitments to the fight against violence against women, specifically under the national domestic violence law that came into effect in 2016.

France is committed to promoting the freedom of speech, gender equality and the fight against sexual and sexist violence worldwide.
