Resolving the case would remove one of several major disputes between the world’s two biggest economies.

Meng was arrested at Vancouver International Airport in December 2018 on a U.S. warrant that charged her with fraud for allegedly misleading HSBC about Huawei’s business dealings in Iran.

A spokeswoman for Huawei declined to comment. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn declined to comment. An attorney for Meng could not be immediately reached for comment.

Meng says she is innocent and has been fighting extradition to the United States from Canada. Meng is confined to Vancouver and monitored 24/7 by private security that she pays for as part of her bail agreement.

Judicial hearings in her extradition case wrapped up in August, with the date for a ruling to be set on Oct. 21.
