Beijing calls on US to withdraw request for Canada to extradite Huawei executive

China’s Foreign Ministry has called on Washington to withdraw its request for Canada to extradite a Huawei executive to face charges of lying to banks about possible dealings with Iran, AP reported. A ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, complained that Washington “has shown disregard for the stern representations” from Beijing over the case of Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer. Meng was arrested in Vancouver on December 1, and faces an extradition hearing on Wednesday. “We urge the US to immediately withdraw the arrest warrant against Miss Meng Wanzhou and stop making such kinds of extradition requests,” Geng said.
