Detained Canadian Michael Spavor gets third consular visit in China

Chinese media pushes for talks with US on Huawei

US security experts are anxious the gear could be used by China for espionage, a concern Huawei says is unfounded.

". President [Donald] Trump meeting Liu [is] a good sign as it suggests the U.S. is also participating in the talks in good faith", the daily noted.

Canada is pushing for more consular access to both men and has demanded their immediate release.

December 8-9: China summons Canadian Ambassador John McCallum and U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad on successive weekend days to warn of "grave consequences" if Meng is not released and demand the U.S. cancel its order for her arrest.

Several countries and worldwide alliances have rallied behind the detainees, calling for China to release them.

The federal government says diplomats visited Canadian entrepreneur Michael Spavor today for the third time since he was arrested in China in December on allegations of endangering Chinese national security.

Since their detention late previous year, Canada and much of the global community have called for Kovrig and Spavor's release. "We are sure there will be a just conclusion to this matter", he says. Wanzhou has been in Canada's custody since last December and the USA has sought her extradition, further angering Beijing. It derives almost half of its total revenue outside China and its global reach has come under attack from the United States, which is trying to prevent US companies from buying Huawei equipment and is pressing allies to do the same. The US justice department charged CFO Meng, alongside, Huawei Technology Co.

In a move certain to inflame the ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China, Justice Department officials announced criminal charges against Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei, several of its affiliates, and its chief financial officer for alleged theft of trade secrets from us telecommunications providers, bank fraud, obstruction of justice, and other violations. The US has also accused the world's largest supplier of telecommunications equipment of stealing technology from T-Mobile US.

January 29: China's foreign ministry says in a statement that Beijing will firmly defend its companies and urges the "stop the unreasonable crackdown on Chinese companies including Huawei".
