China urged Canada, on Monday, to release Ming Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer, as soon as possible.

"Canada should correct its mistake," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a press briefing.

Ming was held in Canada about a year ago, and is resisting extradition to the United States, and is expected to appear later Monday in court in Vancouver as part of her extradition case, Reuters reported.

The Canadian Ministry of Justice had said earlier this month that Huawei's chief financial officer may be extradited to Washington because the crimes attributed to her are stipulated in the laws of both countries.

The United States accuses the Huawei's chief financial officer of violating the ban on Iran by lying to HSBC about the Chinese company's relationship with Skycom, a subsidiary of Huawei, which sells communications equipment in Tehran.

Ming's attorneys believe that their client should not be deported to the United States, because the charge of breaching sanctions against Tehran is not a crime in Canada, as these sanctions do not exist.
