Canada defends Huawei arrest as markets wobble

"The company believes the Canadian and US legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion", said a statement from Huawei. But Trump issued a reprieve, possibly in part because US tech companies are major suppliers of the Chinese giant and would also have been scorched.

The arrest was praised by at least one American official, Republican Senator Ben Sasse (Nebraska), who, in a statement, accused China of undermining the "national security interests" of the U.S."Sometimes Chinese aggression is explicitly state-sponsored and sometimes it's laundered through many of Beijing's so-called "private" sector entities that are in bed with [Chinese President] Xi's communist party", said Sasse.
"I don't see a way out of this", Scissors said.

"We have made solemn representations to Canada and the U.S., demanding that both parties immediately clarify the reasons for the detention, and immediately release the detainee to protect the person's legal rights".
Mulroney said the Meng case has brought Canada and China to an inevitable reckoning in their relationship. "China tension around geopolitics and techno-nationalism", he said of Meng's arrest. "Would not want to be a Canadian business leader in China right now".
China is confident they can reach a trade deal during the 90 days that Trump agreed to suspend US tariff hikes, said a ministry spokesman, Gao Feng.
Huawei's business in Iran grew after Western companies withdrew to protest a crackdown on demonstrators in 2009.

An HSBC spokesperson declined to comment on Thursday. It said Huawei still is a supplier of other equipment and a "valued innovation partner".
Reuters reported that the US has been investigating the tech giant for using the global banking system in an effort to evade Washington's sanctions targeting Iran.
