Wang Lijun, a former gang-busting policeman and now Vice Mayor of Central China’s Chongqing, requested a meeting at a U.S. consulate general, according to a U.S. official.

"Wang Lijun did request a meeting at the U.S. consulate general in Chengdu earlier this week," Victoria Nuland, spokeswoman of the United States Department of State, said on Wednesday.

Chengdu and Chongqing are both cities in Sichuan province.

Nuland said the state department did not talk about issues related to those seeking refugee status or asylum.

Responding to rumors that Wang was forced to leave the consulate, Nuland said: “[Wang] left of his own volition.... He walked out. It was his choice.”
