US to ‘formally seek extradition of Huawei exec Meng Wanzhou from Canada’ as Beijing urges Washington to ‘correct its mistake’ and drop the request

The United States will proceed with the formal extradition from Canada of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, the Globe and Mail reported Monday, as Beijing vowed to respond to Washington’s actions.

Canada’s ambassador to the US, David MacNaughton, told the Canadian newspaper that the United States has told Canada it will request Meng’s extradition, but he did not say when the request will be made.

The deadline for filing is January 30, or 60 days after Meng was arrested on December 1 in Vancouver.
