Chinese State Media Wants Canada To Defy U.S. And Release Imprisoned Huawei Executive

Description

China's state-owned tabloid Global Times issued an editorial stating that Canada should distance itself from U.S. “hegemonism” and grant unconditional freedom to Meng Wanzhou. Meng is the chief financial officer of China's Huawei Technologies and he's been detained in Vancouver on Washington’s request. He's been accused by U.S. prosecutors of misleading banks about transactions linked to Iran. If the U.S. fails to submit a formal demand for her extradition within 60 days of her arrest, she'll be freed.
