On May 27, the Supreme Court of the Canadian province of British Columbia, yielding to US pressure, decided on the “double” nature of the violations allegedly committed by the financial director of the Chinese high-tech company Huawei Meng Wanzhou. In this regard, the Chinese side expressed Canada’s “strong discontent and strong objection,” Xinhua reported May 29.
Commenting on this decision, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Zhao Lijian pointed to his political motivation, for it opens the way for the extradition of Meng Wanzhou to the United States, which the American side has been seeking for a long time.
Recall that the Huawei fund director was detained by the Canadian authorities on December 1, 2018. The alleged violations of the anti-Iranian sanctions adopted in the United States were allegedly called it.
