Meng Wanzhou, vice chairman of Huawei, a major Chinese telecommunications equipment maker arrested in Canada three years ago and charged with fraud in the United States, has been pleaded guilty to Meng Wanzhou. Instead, local media reported that they had allowed them to return to China.

This was reported by the leading American newspaper The Wall Street Journal and the Canadian public broadcaster CBC.

Meng Wanzhou, vice chairman of Huawei, a major Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer, was arrested in Canada at the request of the United States in December 2018 for dealing with Iran, which is imposing economic sanctions by the United States, and has since been fraudulent. Was charged by the US Department of Justice.



After bail, he continues to live under close scrutiny at his home in Vancouver, Canada's west coast.



On October 21, a Canadian court was scheduled to set a date for a decision on whether to hand over Meng's identity to the United States, but the U.S. Department of Justice reported that Meng was part of it. Instead of pleading guilty, he allowed him to return to China.



It is also reported that this could lead to the release of two Canadians who were arrested and sentenced to prison in China shortly after the vice chairman was arrested.



However, the US-China conflict will continue as the US Biden administration sees Huawei as a security threat and tightens regulations.
