China blocks some Canada canola shipments, Ottawa expresses concern

China One Belt One Road

Update 2 (9:31PM EST): Huawei brings up that USA companies have weak "cyber security hygine" as the data breaches that happened over the past few years such as Equifax were all unrelated to Huawei.

Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Technologies is suing the US Government over the "unconstitutional" ban of its products, ratcheting up its fight against a government bent on closing it out of global markets.

Huawei's ire is focused on Section 889 of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). "We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Guo Ping, Huawei Rotating Chairman said.

The executive was arrested in December at Vancouver's airport at the request of USA authorities and Canada announced last week it intends to proceed with the extradition case.

The move comes amid a conflict between the countries over Canada's arrest of a Chinese technology company executive and is seen by some as a new tactic to achieve leverage over Ottawa.

Huawei has announced that it will be taking legal action against the United States for codifying a legal ban against the use of Huawei equipment on 5G networks in the US.

China suspended a trade deal with Norway and restricted imports of Norwegian salmon after the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Chinese political prisoner Liu Xiaobo in 2010.

The U.S. and China have tried to keep Meng's case separate from the trade dispute.

If a judge decides Huawei has a plausible claim the case will proceed to the discovery phase, in which internal documents are shared and US government officials could be forced to provide testimony and lay out their national security concerns.

House Dems send message: Impeachment is on
Gingrich said that "every time they go to a new topic.it looks more and more phony". On top of the investigations, there's more bad news for President Trump this week.

In the press conference, Guo defended the company's record on national security, reiterating that Huawei was a world leader in telecommunications, particularly in 5G.

In a separate 10-count indictment, US prosecutors accuse Huawei of stealing trade secrets, committing wire fraud, laundering money, and obstructing justice.

It's just one small part of a multi-pronged charm offensive that seeks to squelch US accusations that its communications equipment helps Beijing spy on foreign powers.

Ms Meng faces a May 8 hearing in Vancouver, where she was arrested while changing planes.

The Chinese embassy statement has said that due to "obvious political interference", Canada should refuse the USA extradition request and release Meng.

China's government arrested two Canadians, a former diplomat and a businessman, on December 10 in what was widely seen as an attempt to pressure Canada to release Meng, the company's CFO.

In September 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security directed agencies to stop using Kaspersky's anti-virus software based on concerns the Russian government could use the programs to spy on federal information systems.

As the diplomatic row with Canada escalated, China has detained two Canadians working in China, and on Monday accused one of them of stealing Chinese state secrets passed on to him by the other.
