U.S.: Huawei not bargaining chip in trade spat

Hauwei executive Meng Wanzhou was back before a Canadian judge Tuesday, seeking changes to her bail conditions, which include she wear an ankle monitor and be on home lock-down during evening hours.

She's been fighting extradition to the United States since HER December 1st arrest at the request of the U.S. government.

SOUNDBITE: (ENGLISH) ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK WHITTAKER: "As early as 2007 Hauwei employees began to misrepresent the company's relationship with its Iranian affiliate, which is called Skycom." Her latest court day comes one day after the U.S. Justice Department unsealed indictments against her, Chinese technology company Huawei and several of its subsidiaries.

The charges range from stealing trade secrets... to bank and wire fraud as a way to violate sanctions against Iran.

Huawei on Tuesday... denied the company or its subsidiaries - had commited any of the crimes alleged by the U.S. Meng's lawyer says she is being held hostage as part of a U.S. trade spat with China.

But U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in a Tuesday interview on Fox News, says the pursuit against Hauwei has nothing to do with trade negotiations.

The Chinese government, however, doesn't agree.

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) CHINESE FOREIGN MINISTRY SPOKESMAN, GENG SHUANG, SAYING: "During this time, the U.S. has used its state power to discredit and pressure designated Chinese companies, attempting to throttle their ordinary legal operations.

Behind all of this there are very strong political intentions and manipulations." The charges and the talks come at a critical time when the U.S.-China trade war is threatening to derail the entire global economy.
