9月25日晚，在党和人民亲切关怀和坚定支持下，孟晚舟在结束被加拿大方面近3年的非法拘押后，乘坐中国政府包机（a charter flight organized by the Chinese government）抵达深圳宝安国际机场，顺利回到祖国。
There were no handshakes due to epidemic prevention concerns. Meng made a brief speech at the airport.
"After more than 1,000 days of torment, I am finally back in the embrace of the motherland," Meng said.
"I am back, motherland!" she chanted to the cheering crowd.
"As an ordinary Chinese citizen who had suffered this plight and been stranded overseas for nearly three years, there was never a moment when I did not feel the care and warmth of the Party, the motherland and the people," she said.
"President Xi Jinping cares about the safety of each and every Chinese citizen, including me. I am deeply moved by this," Meng said. "I also thank the relevant departments for their support and help. They have resolutely safeguarded the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises and citizens."
"The motherland provides us the strongest backing," Meng said. "As an ordinary Chinese person, I am proud of my motherland."
