And Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December based on United States charges that she was responsible for violations of USA sanctions against Iran.

Styles' comments came shortly after he travelled with former premier Brad Wall to China, where they recognized a seven-year agreement signed between SaskTel and Huawei Canada to test next generation wireless broadband technology in rural Saskatchewan.

The Chinese technology company Huawei is under criminal investigation in the U.S. by federal prosecutors who accuse it of stealing trade secrets from American partners.

The Department of Justice is in the advanced stage of an investigation into the Chinese telecoms company over claims it stole technology from American companies. Instead of doing so, ZTE not only failed to reprimand those involved, but continued to pay them full bonuses, lying to US authorities about its actions. She is awaiting extradition hearings to the USA while living under restrictions in her million-dollar Vancouver home. ZTE Corp was projected to go under if it were not for President Donald Trump lifting the ban to facilitate further negotiations in the trade war.

The Chinese company has already become a major part of the trade dispute between the United States and China. Last month, at the behest of the U.S., Canadian authorities arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou on fraud charges linked to Iran trade-sanction violations.

The action is the latest in a long list taken to fight what some in the Trump administration call China's cheating through intellectual property theft, illegal corporate subsidies and rules hampering USA corporations that want to sell their goods in China.

Earlier this week, Huawei's billionaire founder Ren Zhengfei broke years of silence to dismiss USA accusations that the company helps spy for China's government. Another time, a Huawei employee, smuggled into the testing lab by two other men working for the company, snapped photographs of "Tappy".

Regardless of what actions have or have not now been taken, governments around the world appear to be increasingly hesitant to cooperate with Chinese corporations.

In its 2014 suit, T-Mobile alleged a Huawei engineer slipped one of the robots fingertips into his laptop bag during the visit and left with it.

T-Mobile also claimed it wasn't Huawei's first victim, alleging that the Chinese tech giant also stole source code and other trade secrets from other companies. A jury in 2017 ruled that Huawei misappropriated T-Mobile's trade secrets and awarded $4.8 million to T-Mobile, according to FierceWireless. US lawmakers have also banded together to ban chip sales to Huawei, ZTE, and other mainland companies to over sanctions violations.
