The U.S. government’s pursuit of Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou is part of a strategy to thwart the rise of the Chinese technology company and an abuse of the extradition process, her defense team told a Canadian court Wednesday.

President Joe Biden’s administration, like that of his predecessor Donald Trump, is using Meng’s case to further U.S. foreign policy aims and the extradition request should be dismissed, her lawyers said.
