Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou has been confirmed as a Chinese citizen, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) spokesperson said Friday.

"According to the Nationality Law of the People's Republic of China, we are certain about Meng Wanzhou's Chinese citizenship," said spokesperson Geng Shuang, dispelling suspicions over Meng's citizenship.

Geng Shuang also said that China provided Meng Wanzhou with consular assistance anddemanded her immediate release. China has made its stance clear, demanding an immediate clarification of the reasons for detention. However, to date, neither Canada nor the U.S. has provided any evidence that the detainee violated the laws of the two countries.

"China has always protected the legitimate rights and interests of foreign citizens in China. Other countries should also abide by Chinese laws and regulations during their stay in China," said Geng when asked whether China will take retaliatory measures.

No wrongdoing by Meng

Huwei denied any wrongdoing by Meng. The Chinese tech giant said in a statement on Thursday that the company complies with all applicable laws and regulations where it operates, including applicable export control and sanction laws and regulations of the U.S., EU and UN.

Meng, chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., was provisionally detained by the Canadian Authorities on behalf of the United States, when she was transferring flights in Vancouver, Huawei said in the statement.

Wrong. The charges are publicly known.

"China has always protected the legitimate rights and interests of foreign citizens in China. Other countries should also abide by Chinese laws and regulations during their stay in China," said Geng when asked whether China will take retaliatory measures.


This is called "sidestepping the question". A favourite tactic among politicians.

Then what are we waiting for?

Securing the immediate release of Meng is of the highest priority at this time, much more important to China's image than the parade of commoners lining up the streets of foreign capitals to welcome state visitors from China.

Make no mistake about it - it's Job Number One.

Meng's release from Canadian custody is of utmost importance to China's image in the world -- far more than how many Spaniards, Argentinians, Panamanians or Portuguese line the streets or wave our flags in welcoming our leaders.

And it really doesn't matter whether China assumes technological leadership by 2025 or 2027.

The important thing is to secure Meng's release from Canadian custody in 2018 and not a day beyond.

Or else Huawei will lose a larger chunk of Western nations supporting its 5G platform because Huawei's success isn't just due to its technological prowess, but its image of having strong support from its Chinese motherland.

Without that image, Huawei will be in serious trouble.

This is a political crisis of the first order, and we cannot let the U.S. set the agenda by letting Meng be wrongfully extradited to the U.S.  

What Trump is doing is blackmailing China while the trade talks continue, and Huawei's own announcement that it trusted the impartiality of U.S. courts simply missed the point -- which shows that  it either has terrible legal advice, or that it was simply acting in accordance with governmental guidance.

If this is not resolved to our satisfaction, we should seize the CEO of any American company that is found to have had any dealings with Taiwan in violation of the Three Communiques that the U.S. had signed with China.

The trouble with our side is that we believe in the worthiness of words, or at least the signed documents, of any Western leader that has reached post-negotiation agreements with us.  We cannot imagine that they could be such shameless liars without even a modicum of self-respect.

We have had no or little experience dealing with complete scoundrels who put such documents into the paper shredder almost as soon as they are signed.  The winners of American elections aren't based on their trustworthiness, but on their demagoguery abilities.

So the only recourse to solve the Meng situation is to seize their CEOs based on their non-observance of the Three Communiques in trading with the Taiwanese on our largest offshore island.

China government is not experienced!
This case will make China government more difficult to deal with her own citizens.
Huawei CFO is someone that must be protected, but she must stand in court to clarify her innocence!
More importantly, if she is proven INNOCENT, then she must claim damages!
If not, she will have to spend the rest of her life in solitary confinement talking to the wall!
