China warns Canada of ‘serious consequences’ over CFO’s arrest

Beijing (CNN)The Chinese Foreign Ministry is summoning the US and Canadian ambassadors in protest over the detention of a Huawei executive in Vancouver, describing it as “lawless” and “extremely vicious.”

The tech giant’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested December 1 and faces extradition to the United States, where she is accused of helping Huawei circumvent US sanctions on Iran.
In a statement on Sunday, China’s vice minister of foreign affairs, Le Yucheng, said the US ambassador to China, Terry Branstad, is being summoned over Beijing’s “strong protest against the US’s unreasonable direction to Canada of detaining the Huawei executive.” Le said China would like the United States to revoke the arrest warrant against Meng and allow her to be freed.
