Huawei executive Meng attends bail hearing at Canadian court

TPG stops its mobile network due to Huawei ban

The US said it would proceed with her formal extradition, a move certain to ratchet up tensions with China.

The US has requested the extradition of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou from Canada.

Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of the company, is seeking to vary the conditions of bail imposed by B.C. Supreme Court Justice William Ehrcke following a three-day hearing in December.

The developments occurred just as China and the United States are set to begin a new round of trade negotiations on Wednesday in Washington. President Donald Trump said he would get involved in the Huawei case if it would help produce a trade agreement with China.

It's claimed Meng, the daughter of Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei, tried to cover up the Chinese tech giant's business operations in Iran.

Neither Mr Lametti nor Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland gave any hints on whether Canada would back the extradition request.

Both sides have characterised this month's lower-level talks as "good".

The Chinese government described the indictments as "deep political motivations and manipulations".

The charges unsealed Monday accused Huawei of trying to take a piece of a robot and steal other technology from a T-Mobile lab that was used to test smartphones. US are accused of 10 charges related to theft of trade secrets, wire fraud and obstruction of justice. If Huawei is found guilty of Wire Fraud and Obstruction of Justice, it could face a maximum fine of US$500,000.

The indictments follow a 2014 T-Mobile civil suit accusing Huawei of stealing trade secrets related to a robotic phone-testing device known as "Tappy".

Canada's Department of Justice confirmed in an email that Canadian officials had received a formal extradition request from the United States on January 28 and that Canada now has until March 1 to issue an authority to proceed.

It's separate from a 13-count case that accuses Huawei of misleading banks about the company's business and violating United States sanctions.

In a separate case, the Justice Department said Huawei stole robotic technology from T-Mobile.

The escalating tensions between the USA and China come as the Chinese delegation led by Vice Premier Liu He landed in Washington DC for talks to resolve the ongoing trade row between the two countries.

In 2012, engineers at Huawei's United States branch were given access to Tappy after the two companies entered into a supply agreement.

Meng's arrest nearly two months ago touched off an ongoing diplomatic furor that resulted Sunday in the firing of John McCallum as Canada's ambassador to China after he publicly expressed confidence in her ability to fight extradition to the United States. Last week, Vodafone, one of the world's biggest mobile phone companies, said it would stop using Huawei gear in its core networks.

In a previous sworn affidavit, Meng said she is innocent and would contest the allegations at trial in the United States if she is extradited.
