Meng Wanzhou's detention comes after American authorities reportedly launched an investigation into suspected Iran sanctions by Huawei, which was already under scrutiny by United States intelligence officials, who deemed the company a national security threat.

The arrest of Wanzhou Meng, Huawei's chief financial officer and board deputy chair, has been confirmed by the Canadian authorities.

"As there is a publication ban in effect, we can not provide any further detail at this time", McLeod said.

In April, the Wall Street Journal reported the U.S. Department of Justice was investigating whether Huawei violated U.S. sanctions against Iran.

In 2012, the House of Representatives released a report warning Huawei poses a national security threat to the USA, and American companies and its government should avoid doing business with the company.

"The company has been provided very little information regarding the charges and is not aware of any wrongdoing by Ms Meng (Wanzhou)", it said.

She is being sought for extradition by the United States, he said.

Meng's arrest, which was first reported by the Globe and Mail, comes less than two months after US lawmakers sent Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a letter urging Canada to ban Huawei's equipment from Canadian wireless networks.

Officials for the Canadian and US Justice Departments did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In August, U.S. president Donald Trump signed an act to ban the use of Huawei components or services that are "essential" or "critical" to the systems they are used.

Skycom was described by Huawei as one of its "major local partners", although the Chinese company said neither it nor Skycom ultimately provided the HP equipment.
