China Says Canada’s Huawei Arrest Has ‘Aroused Public Anger’

  • Beijing keeps pressure on Ottawa in dispute over Meng case
  • Chinese consumers have called for boycotts of Canadian goods

China blamed Canada for fanning public outrage by arresting Huawei Technologies Co. executive Meng Wanzhou earlier this month, as Beijing continued to ramp up pressure on the U.S. ally.

“The Canadian government at the request of the U.S. side wrongly detained the Chinese citizen,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said. “This action has aroused public anger in China.”
