(CGTN) Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang on Saturday urged the U.S. to drop the extradition request of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer (CFO) of China's Huawei.
Canada released a statement on March 1, saying that they would allow the extradition hearing of Meng Wangzhou to the United States to proceed.
The Chinese Embassy in Canada had expressed opposition to the decision in a statement .
“The Chinese side is utterly dissatisfied with and firmly opposes the issuance of Authority to Proceed by the Department of Justice Canada on the case of Meng Wanzhou,” the Embassy said.
Huawei earlier had also expressed their disappointment in Canada approving the extradition hearing against their CFO, saying "she is innocent of any wrongdoing and that the U.S. prosecution and extradition constitutes an abuse of the processes of law".
