Huawei Executive Meng Wanzhou Returns to China; Detained Canadians Released

The Index Today

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei Chief Financial Officer, was finally released by Canadian authorities after her three-year extradition case came to an end on Saturday. In return, Beijing freed and sent home two Canadians who had been detained for over 32 months in the country. This move came as a gesture to improve and strengthen ties between both allies.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received the two detained Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor at the airport in Calgary. On twitter, Trudeau said, “You’ve shown incredible strength, resilience and perseverance. Know that Canadians across the country will continue to be here for you, just as they have been.”
Meng Wanzhou was quoted saying, “I’m finally back home. The waiting in a foreign country was full of suffering. I was speechless the moment my feet touched Chinese soil.” She was a red-colored dress as she walked down the plane on the tarmac and was greeted by people.
Huawei has said it will continue to defend itself from the U.S charges will work to resolve the present issues between both parties. Republican senators have condemned the agreement and are asking the White House to address the issue. Marc Rubio said, “The release of Ms. Meng raises serious questions about President Joe Biden’s ability and willingness to confront the threat posed by Huawei and the Chinese Communist Party.”
