US investigators accuse the manager of selling equipment to Iran through a company called Skycom. As a result, she violated the sanctioning law.
Other measures are dependent on the behavior of the US, said Vice-Foreign Minister Le Yucheng, without being concrete. He told the Canadian Ambassador Terry Branstad.
The US accuses Meng of „conspiring to cheat financial institutions.“ It is said to have veiled against US banks that Huawei and Skycom were de facto the same company. The US is demanding their extradition.
Previously, the Canadian ambassador had been summoned. The case was „extremely vile,“ said the Chinese Foreign Ministry and threatened with consequences.
Meng is fighting for her release on bail. The 46-year-old threatens the sentence to a decades-long prison sentence.
