Huawei just released a statement with regards to the arrest of its chief financial officer (CFO), Wanzhou Meng:
"Recently, our corporate CFO, Ms. Meng Wanzhou, was provisionally detained by the Canadian Authorities on behalf of the United States of America, which seeks the extradition of Ms. Meng Wanzhou to face unspecified charges in the Eastern District of New York, when she was transferring flights in Canada. The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms. Meng.The company believes the Canadian and US legal systems will ultimately reach a just conclusion. Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations where it operates, including applicable export control and sanction laws and regulations of the UN, US and EU."
Sad to see America spazzing over Huawei’s selling of its products to Iran under a different label.

Never considered Huawei before. Now my next phone will definitely be a Huawei 👍🌞👍
I'm not sure of the facts on this one. Nobody else here is either, but you wouldn't think it from the comments. Haven't been here before, but it's like orange man bad central. Christ. No wonder the whole left:right polarisation is so bad. Do any of you ever expose yourselves to an opposing view? Or a fact?

Do Americans depend on this kind of kidnapping to ask China for ransom? 500 trillion dollars?

If iPhone is still selling in Iran why can’t Huawei?

I bought a Huawei Mate20 Pro. 10 times zoom, wow. Excellent. HUAWEI is so great. Jobs died and took away the soul of Apple.

Americans are jealous and want to kill Huawei, which is better than Apple. Then Americans eavesdrop on everyone in the world through Apple. Including lover's words. Do you remember the Sloden incident? The United States eavesdrops on the German President. Americans have no human rights, no freedom... They are all fake. The world was deceived by Americans.
Someone was asking whether Canada is part of America . The answer is no but the PM is because he sold his soul to US .

In a country which grants bail to violent criminals, Canada has held since Dec 1, a high profile business official from China in a jail surrounded by barbed wire (the Alouette Detention Centre for Women). She has broken no Canadian laws and is caught up in the politics of an ongoing trade war. If Canada is not a puppet of the U. S. It is certainly doing a pretty good job of acting like one.

china forgot to read fine print at bottom of all american legal papers, agreement good until ink dries
lifeisawar zone
this arrest complies with americas judicial system of double standards making the arrest 100% legal, china are cry babies
When dealing with the Yanks, one must remember what the natives said about them:

"They made us many promises, more than I can remember. But they kept one. They promised they would take our land...and they took it." --Chief Red Cloud.

If the US does not endorse Huawei and ZTE celulares, that means They are safe to buy because the CIA, NSA, FBI, KGB, HS, The White House, Interpol, Google , and SOB, will not be able to spy on you. My next cell will be Huawei. Now you know what they don’t want you to get a Huawei.

Canada is caught in the middle between two superpowers over the Huawei CFO arrest. While Ottawa says this isn't political, China seems to feel very differently. So is Canada being used? And at what costs? At Issue is here to answer those questions and more.
