China calls United States charges against Huawei 'unjustified repression'

Lametti acknowledged the legal process can take time.

He then urged the United States to drop its extradition request and for Canada to "stop pulling the chestnuts out of the fire" for its North American neighbor. Freeland told reporters Meng "has been afforded access to Canada's impartial and objective judicial system".

Meng, who was arrested last month in Canada and faces extradition to the USA, is charged with bank fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracies to commit bank and wire fraud.

Though a February 6 hearing was previously scheduled to determine future court dates, the judge on Tuesday rescheduled it to March 6, as Canada's minister of justice will decide whether to approve the US extradition request by March 1. Meng is now scheduled to appear in court on March 6.

Nine days after her arrest in Vancouver on December 1, Chinese authorities detained two Canadians in what is seen as an act of retaliation to pressure Ottawa. She was arrested on December 1 in Canada.

Meng and Huawei have denied any wrongdoing. It derives almost half of its total revenue outside China. He said it would be "great for Canada" if the U.S. drops its extradition request against Meng. Officials are studying the security implications of 5G networks, the latest generation of cellular mobile communications. However, an FBI investigation revealed that Huawei company emails sent in 2013 offered bonuses to employees based on the value of the confidential information they could steal from "other companies around the world", and send to Huawei via an encrypted email address. Mnuchin said the United States security concerns raised by the Huawei case were separate from the trade issue.

The foreign ministry also complained that Washington has "mobilized state power" to hurt Chinese companies "in an attempt to strangle fair and just operations". China has demanded her immediate release.

The charges in both cases add to US pressure on Huawei, the world's biggest telecommunications equipment maker.

Citing emails and phone calls, it is claimed that Huawei engineers in the U.S. were directed by executives in China to take photos and share notes of Tappy's specifications.
