China summons US envoy to protest detention of Huawei exec
Monday, 10 December 2018 BEIJING (AP) — China summoned the U.S. ambassador to Beijing to protest Canada's detention of a senior executive of Chinese electronics giant Huawei at Washington's behest, demanding the U.S. cancel the order for her arrest. The official Xinhua News Agency said Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng "lodged solemn representations and strong protests" with Ambassador Terry Branstad on Sunday against the detention of Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou. Meng, who is reportedly suspected of trying to evade U.S. trade curbs on Iran, was detained on Dec. 1 while changing planes in Vancouver, Canada. The Xinhua report said Le called Meng's detention "extremely egregious" and demanded the U.S. vacate the arrest warrant.
Newser reports China wasted little time in summoning the US ambassador to Beijing on Sunday to protest the detention of a Huawei executive in Canada—immediately on the heels of warning Canadian envoy John McCallum that there would be "grave consequences" if Meng Wanzhou is not released.
