John McCallum, Canada’s ambasssador to China, told Chinese-language media in a closed-door meeting that Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou can make “strong arguments” her arrest has been politicized and that she should not be extradited to the U.S.
Reports of the Tuesday meeting, which was kept secret from English-language media, emerged Wednesday morning as clips began circulating online of McCallum defending the argument put forward by China over the past two months that there has been political interference in Meng’s case and pointing the finger squarely at U.S. President Donald Trump.
Because of that, he said Meng can make a strong case to a judge that she should be freed.
