Canadian court on Tuesday granted bail to Huawei Financial Chief Officer Meng Wanzhou who has been detained for nearly two weeks for accusing of lying to bankers about use of a covert subsidiary to sell to Iran in breach of sanctions. Meng denies any wrongdoing and has said she will contest the allegations. In an interview with Reuters news agency, Mr Trump said he would intervene in the US Justice Department's case against Ms Meng if it would serve national security interests or help achieve a trade deal with China.
For more on this, Wang Peng, an associate research fellow of Chongyang Institute foe Financial Studies at Renmin University of China, was invited to join the CRIEZFM. Wang Peng believes that, firstly, now we haven’t got strong evidence to prove whether the United States has political motivation or not and America denied any political purpose on this issue. Secondly, if we assume this case is of political motivation, we can know that this is Trump’s logic of doing business negotiation written in Trump’s book.
