China summons US envoy to lodge ‘strong protest’ over Huawei executive's arrest – FM

Beijing has summoned the US ambassador and lodged a “strong protest” over the detainment of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou, China's foreign ministry announced, according to Reuters. Washington should also "withdraw" its arrest warrant.

Any further measures will depend on the next steps taken by the US, Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng told the ambassador, the news agency says.

Meng was arrested while changing planes in Vancouver on December 1. She now faces possible extradition to the United States over allegedly lying about her company's ties to SkyCom, a company that tried to sell US-manufactured technologies to Iran despite sanctions.
