China Trade Talks "Going Very Well", Says Donald Trump

Meng Wanzhou Executive Board Director at Huawei Attends the Vtb Capital's 'Russia Calling' Investment Forum in Moscow Russia on Oct. 2 2014. A Canadian prosecutor said on Dec. 7 2018 Meng faces charges for using 'fraud' to try

Chinese state media have slammed Meng's detention, accusing the United States of trying to "stifle" Huawei and curb its global expansion.

A prosecutor for the Canadian government urged the court not to grant bail, saying the charges against Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer for Chinese telecom giant Huawei, involve USA allegations that Huawei used a shell company to access the Iran market in dealings that contravene United States sanctions.

The U.S. has led a charge to ban the use of Huawei products among its allies, particularly the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing network that also includes Canada, Australia, Britain and New Zealand.

The arrest, revealed by Canadian authorities late on Wednesday, was part of a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to evade American sanctions against Iran, sources say.

In January 2013, Reuters reported that Skycom, which attempted to sell embargoed Hewlett-Packard computer equipment to Iran's largest mobile-phone operator, had much closer ties to Huawei than previously known.

The hearing was to present arguments for and against releasing Ms Meng while her case proceeds.

There's always a good coverage of grass in Adelaide and it offers a bit with the new ball, but there's also a lot of runs to be had out there", he said about the toss.

If she is extradited and convicted, she could face sentences as long as 30 years. "Huawei is one company that we've been concerned about".

US President Donald Trump did not know about the arrest in advance, two US officials said.

In a statement earlier this week, Huawei said the company complies with all laws and regulations in the countries where it operates, including applicable export control, sanction laws and regulations of the United Nations, the United States and the European Union.

The arrest of a top-ranking officer of one of China's leading tech companies on charges of technology theft and misuse has given a new twist to the trade and technology war between Washington and Beijing, even as the company ran into trouble in other countries - mainly Japan, which banned its government staff from buying Huawei devices, and the United Kingdom, which made the firm submit to special security norms to continue to operate.

The Canadian prosecutor said this was untrue.

China says Meng has done nothing wrong and has demanded her release.

For years, the magazine France Football has been doling out its Ballon d'Or award to the best men's soccer player in the world. Responding to the criticism, Solveig tweeted: "Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended".

In a sign Meng's case might not derail the Trump-Xi truce, Beijing protested Meng's arrest but said talks with the Trump administration would go ahead. Hours before her arrest, Trump and Xi had agreed over dinner in Buenos Aires to call a 90-day ceasefire in their countries' bitter dispute which has seen Washington slap tariffs on $250bn worth of Chinese goods, and Beijing responding in kind.

"If you have infinite resources, the value of pledges diminishes", the lawyer representing Canada's attorney general said. Prosecutors claim that she is a flight risk due to her family's enormous wealth, while the defense points out that Meng has resided with her husband and children in Vancouver for years, and had obtained permanent residence status.

The U.S. sees Huawei and smaller Chinese tech suppliers as possible fronts for Chinese spying and as commercial competitors.

Trump did not know about the arrest in advance, two USA officials said on Thursday. She was widely considered to be his likely successor.

"The threat from these companies lies in their access to critical internet backbone infrastructure", she said.
