China's Huawei launches court challenge to US security law

"After exhausting all other means to alleviate doubts of USA lawmakers we are left with no choice but to challenge the law in court", Guo Ping, one of the three global chairmen of Huawei, said during a live-streamed press conference that was hosted at the company's global headquarters in Shenzhen, China.

The Chinese tech giant announced on Thursday it would be filing a lawsuit against the US government, which has accused Huawei of being a spy threat and placed restrictions on its products.

Huawei executives have continued to insist on the company's independence and transparency.

Trump has said he'd intervene in the case if that helped secure a trade deal with Beijing.

Although U.S. officials say the Huawei CFO court case and the trade talks are entirely separate issues, they point to the deep divisions between the two governments on trade and technology issues.

Relations between Canada and China have deteriorated sharply since Meng's arrest.

Ottawa's foreign minister on Tuesday decried Beijing's move to block a major Canadian canola exporter's sales in China, the latest escalation in a burgeoning row between the 2 countries.
