China confirms arrests of Canadians detained amid Huawei spat

Canada not ruling out following U.S. steps with Huawei ban
Earlier in the day, China formally arrested two Canadian citizens who were detained on accusations of obtaining secret state data on behalf of foreign actors on 16 May.
Since the arrests of Huawei's Meng in Vancouver and the detentions of Kovrig and Spavor, China has also barred shipments of Canadian canola on the grounds they're ridden with pests, though Canadian officials say they've received no evidence supporting that claim.
"The Chinese government is not following the same kinds of rules and principles that the large majority of democracies follow in regards to rules-based order, in regards to global relations", Trudeau told reporters in Paris on Thursday.
China's move to detain the two men was widely interpreted in Canada as retaliation for the country's decision to arrest Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei.
Mr Lu said yesterday that the two were arrested recently, but did not provide a date, and added that he had no information about where they were being held.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Thursday the arrest of Kovrig and Spavor had been approved by "Chinese prosecutorial authorities" and asked Canada to stop "making irresponsible remarks on China's rule of law".
Canada has refused China's demand to release Meng. The two have been allowed short consular visits once a month, during which they are not allowed to discuss the cases against them with Canadian diplomats.
China has said it is fully guaranteeing both men's lawful rights.
Putting constraints on Huawei's supply chain could also delay its procurement of components and parts needed to help Chinese telecom operators roll out 5G in China, US brokerage Jefferies wrote in a note, unless Beijing manages to negotiate with Washington to help Huawei get out of "jail".
China has repeatedly demanded the release of Meng, who now faces extradition to the U.S, and has reacted angrily to extradition proceedings against her in a Canadian court.
They have been accused of harming national security, but were not formally arrested until Thursday.
Ms Meng, 47, is the daughter of Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's billionaire founder, Ren Zhengfei.
A Canadian judge this month allowed Meng to move from a $4.2 million mansion into a bigger $13 million mansion - she owns several homes in Canada - due to security reasons.
She was arrested at Vancouver's airport on a US warrant and is fighting extradition on charges that she conspired to defraud global banks about Huawei's relationship with a company operating in Iran.
