They agreed to a 90-day truce in an escalating trade war that is threatening world economic growth and has set global investors on edge.

A Wall Street Journal report last month said the US government was trying to persuade wireless and internet providers in allied countries to avoid equipment from Huawei.

"The ban was sought by Ms. Meng". "Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations where it operates, including applicable export control and sanction laws and regulations of the UN, US and EU", Huawei wrote in the statement. "The Chinese side firmly opposes and strongly protests over such kind of actions which seriously harmed the human rights of the victim", its statement read.

A US Justice Department spokesman declined to comment. Meng was detained in Vancouver but is facing potential extradition to the USA, which had earlier opened an investigation into whether Huawei sold equipment to Iran despite sanctions on exporting there.

Geng said the US and Canada haven't provided reasons for Meng's detention.
