After reaching an agreement with US prosecutors, Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who has been under house arrest at his home in Vancouver for the past three years, regained his freedom and returned to China on a chartered plane by the Chinese government. Two Canadians detained in China for more than 1,000 days were immediately released and returned to Canada. The international media regards this incident as a victory for Beijing’s “hostage diplomacy”

“In exchange for Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei, China released two Canadians who had been imprisoned for more than a thousand days. This is good news, but it also contains a painful message.” —— According to Der Spiegel, this lawsuit has not only related to the law from the beginning: “The three defendants have become pawns in the geopolitical, economic and technological competition between the United States and China. Canada has been legally extradited from the United States. The constraints of the treaty are in a dilemma.”

Beijing’s hostage diplomacy has worked

The article pointed out that although Beijing officials deny that there is any connection between the three cases, in fact, all the judicial steps of the Chinese judiciary against Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor are time-aligned. The decision of Meng Wanzhou’s trial is completely consistent with the major political events in Sino-U.S. relations: “Looking back, the incident temporarily concluded confirming that all those who viewed China’s actions as political hostage acts, that is, 

China’s attempts to pass Arrest two Canadians to coerce the release of a Chinese citizen.”

The article pointed out that the two Canadians who were isolated and imprisoned in China were able to return to Canada to end a humanitarian tragedy. At the same time, the incident also had multiple political influences: The lowest Sino-U.S. relationship in history has cleared a toxic legacy from Trump’s tenure, but not only for the United States and Canada but for all governments seeking to deal with China in the right way, the “two Michaels” were released. The good news also contains a disturbing message: Beijing’s hostage diplomacy has worked, “Beijing has won this dispute.”

Meng Wanzhou arrived in Shenzhen on a chartered plane by the Chinese government

The Wall Street Journal wrote under the title “China’s Hostage Victory”, “Westerners working in China have noticed that you may be arrested on unreasonable charges at any time and used as a hostage to promote the interests of the Communist Party. This is The U.S. sent a humiliating message to China’s hostage diplomacy in the case of Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou.”

The article pointed out that although Meng Wanzhou admitted the facts she previously denied, it will not play a big role in other potential cases against Huawei, because there is nothing in the deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) that requires her to be in a U.S. court. To testify for these facts, although she agreed not to refute these facts, if she repented in a safe place in China, she would leave the jurisdiction of the US Department of Justice. The article reads: “It is hard to believe that the professional prosecutors who brought this case are satisfied with the outcome. It devalues ​​the rule of law and undermines their efforts to impose sanctions on Iran.” “The release of Mr. Cumming Kay and Mr. Spavor is a good thing. News. But China and the rest of the world will get a message that coercive diplomacy to take hostages will be useful

Misinformation

The New York Times article stated that “in Washington, she (Meng Wanzhou) has become a symbol of the cold war-like atmosphere in Sino-US relations-the practice of releasing relevant personnel at almost the same time by both sides also bears the shadow of that era.” In addition, “ The outcome of this three-year case shows that in a major dispute in which both sides are accused of taking hostages, it is possible for the Biden administration and the Xi Jinping administration to reach some kind of reconciliation. However, on the same day, President Biden for the first time Meeting at the White House with the leaders of the three democracies in the Indo-Pacific region, Australia, Japan, and India, is another effort by him to forge a loose alliance against China’s growing influence.”
