In the months since Meng's arrest, China has repeatedly expressed anger at Canada for arresting Meng.
The Chinese government has targeted Canadian canola and meat imports.The associate Chief Justice of the B.C.S.C., Heather Holmes, still has to rule on alleged abuses of Meng's rights during here arrest.
And within days of Meng's arrest, authorities detained two Canadians who were living and working in China, former diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor.
Chinese authorities were quick to express their displeasure.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian called for Meng's release again Tuesday, insisting the dispute was political, not legal.
"The Canadian side should immediately correct its mistake, release Ms. Meng and ensure her safe return to China at an early date so as to avoid any continuous harm to China-Canada relations," Zhao said in a news conference.Trump has already said that he might release Meng if China plays ball on their trade dispute.
