The Chinese Embassy in Canada has issued a statement over the arrest of Meng Wanzhou

The chances of trade peace between the USA and China took a blow Thursday as it emerged Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou had been held in Canada and faces extradition to the United States over alleged Iran sanctions breaches by the firm.

Meng Wanzhou, who is also Huawei's deputy chair and is the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested in Vancouver in relation to suspicions of violations to United States sanctions against Iran.

While few details of the arrest have yet been released, the Canadian Justice Department has confirmed that Meng was sought for extradition by the US.

Ms Meng Wanzhou, who is also the daughter of the company's founder, is wanted for suspected sanctions breaches linked to Iran. Huawei issued a statement saying Meng was changing flights in Canada when she was detained "on behalf of the United States of America" to face "unspecified charges" in NY.

News of Meng's arrest comes in the wake of reports in April of 2018 that US prosecutors based in NY were investigating the possible violation of USA sanctions against selling USA -origin products to Iran.

The company has since issued a statement on the matter, saying they took down the website and are investigating the incident. If you submitted a support ticket last night, there's a chance you'd be given full access to other people's tickets.

But news of Ms Meng's detention spooked sentiment on Thursday. The company is the world's second-largest telecommunications equipment and service provider, after South Korea's Samsung, and recently surpassed Apple.

The arrest is related to violations of USA sanctions, a person familiar with the matter said, though officials have so far stayed mum on her allegations.

The arrest, understood to have happened on December 1, is related to alleged violations of United States sanctions, according to reports. The company has been making a push to become the world leader in 5G technology and met with strong resistance from USA officials.

The U.S. government has been concerned about Huawei for years because of uncertainty over its relationship with the Chinese government.

The arrest by Canadian authorities of Meng stems from an allegation that another company which she managed violated a USA ban against selling technology to Iran. Similar allegations of breaching USA export restrictions led to rival Chinese telecoms equipment maker ZTE Corp being hit with a devastating ban and heavy fines this year.

Huawei later said the HP equipment was ultimately not provided to Iran either by Huawei or Skycom, Reuters said.

The U.S.is anxious about the extent to which Chinese-made equipment is used in the telecommunications sectors of countries that host American military bases.

In 2011, the American government stopped Huawei from purchasing USA server technology company 3Leaf's assets, for national security reasons.

ZTE is China's second-largest telecommunications equipment maker and relies on USA components for its smart phones and networking equipment. "We struggle to see how a comprehensive agreement can emerge in the next 3 months and instead expect trade tensions to resurface in earnest early next year".

Founded in China more than 30 years ago, Huawei's revenue in 2018 exceeded $100billion for the first time in its history, according to CNBC.

O2 network down across Kent leaving thousands without data
The Transport for London's electronic timetable service at bus stops relies on the O2 network, so this service is also down. The O2 network has been hit with problems - meaning users are unable to access the internet when without a wifi connection.

The Chinese government has demanded that Meng be released. Security concerns have hampered Huawei's business in the U.S.as acquisitions were rejected and companies warned not to source network equipment from Huawei or ZTE. Huawei has denied the links.
