Rubio Wants Chinese Telecommunication CFO Extradited

13SHARES

Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Chinese telecommunications company Juawei, was arrested in Canada for violating sanctions that were imposed on Iran.

In response, Senator Marco Rubio is arguing that Wanzhou should be extradited to the Unites States, saying that “The arrest of Huawei’s CFO by the Canadian government for potential violations of Iran sanctions is welcome and I urge prompt extradition to the U.S. Huawei has direct ties to the Chinese government and Communist Party, has long posed a serious risk to US national security, and I continue to strongly urge Canada to reconsider Huawei’s inclusion in any aspect of its 5G development, introduction, and maintenance.”

This week, Senator Rubio continues to assert that companies like ZTE and Huawei, both companies directed by the Chinese regime, pose a threat to American security.
