China denies 'coercive' diplomacy with Canada, urges release of Huawei executive
China on Thursday denied it had taken two Canadian men hostage, and repeated a call for the release of a Huawei Technologies Co Ltd executive held in Canada who faces extradition to the United States amid a long-running diplomatic dispute. Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, a Chinese citizen, was arrested in Vancouver in late 2018 on a bank fraud warrant issued by U.S. authorities.Meng has said she is innocent and is fighting extradition in a Canadian court. Shortly after Meng's arrest, Beijing detained two Canadians on national security charges and halted imports of canola seed.
