1.  Hot on the heels of the Trump-Xi meeting at the G20 in Buenos Aires, the Trump administration took three hostile actions in quick succession against China.

(a)  As usual, the Jekyll and Hyde US leader keeps up pressure on China by tweeting threats of more tariffs if he cannot get what he wishes for.

(b)  It was reported on December 4 that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told diplomats and officials In a foreign policy speech that Trump was not abandoning its global leadership but instead reshaping the post-World War Two system on the basis of sovereign states, not multilateral institutions, as it sees fit to stop “bad actors” such as Russia, China and Iran from gaining.

(c)  It was reported on December 5 that Canada has arrested Huawei's global chief financial officer in Vancouver, where she is facing extradition to the US.  The arrest is related to violations of US sanctions against Iran.  Meng Wanzhou, who is one of the vice chairs on the Chinese technology company's board and the daughter of company founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested on December 1 and a court hearing has been set for Friday.

2.  Meng's arrest throws into question whether Chinese citizens or tourists are safe when they travel to countries allied to the US.  Now it seems that Chinese could be arrested anytime and extradited to the US to be charged for violation of US laws.  It is noted that US sanctions against Iran is itself a violation against international law.  Hence it would be an outrage and laughing stock for a country that violates international law to arrest and charge foreign citizens as though their countries are US colonies.

It is noted that Meng will be the successor of her father.  Hence through this arrest, it seems that the US is trying to destroy Huawei once and for all.  This in turn is an attempt by the US to destroy China’s high tech industry.

Are those hostile actions taken by Trump as additional bargaining chips?  If so, he needs to go for a mental checkup.

  Canada will be the laughing stock...
The Lady was on her way to Argentina and big bros told little brother what to do...

   However, I'll bet my worn shoe against by worn sock that the Canucks will not dare to hand  over Huawei's global chief financial officer to the Yanks...

Suffering from the after-effects of swallowing the US poison pill clause, Canada now becomes an accessory to the US, the only country that uses sanctions as a reason to kidnap the future CEO of a global brand in order to stop it from winning more market share by open competition. What's next? Karate pork chops?

If you commit a crime in a country, you are charged in and according to laws of that specific country.

China above all, under current leadership, should recognize how important the co-operation between police authorities of different countries is to extradite wanted suspects.

Whether US sanctions are violation of international law or not is irrelevant. In this matter too China is not a stranger to disagreeing with many international laws or standards, and implementing its own instead.

If China wants to continue on that path, it should also respect other countries sovereignty to make their laws (an sanctions) according to their own judicial system, not China's or "international orders". Otherwise it will be China who will become the laughing stock.

If anything, this move form USA (even for readers who disagree with anything usanian), takes USA practises closer to those of China. Chinese should be proud of this!

re: " Hence it would be an outrage and laughing stock for a country that violates international law  ...

Well said.  I wish to share with everybody here an interesting comment from a netizen in response to a similar thread of mine in a US political forum:

"Something that everyone should take note of, if only for the concerning legal precedent it sets.
If one country can take its laws and apply it to everyone else in the world, what type of place is that going to be?

I haven't specifically checked but I'm pretty sure the U.S. laws she is being charged with don't specifically say they were designed to include foreign citizens in foreign countries anywhere in the world.

If that's how it works, imagine how many laws in other countries you are violating right now."
