Ottawa, Jan 26 (IBNS): Canadian Ambassador to China, John McCallum, has reportedly said dropping Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou's extradition to the US would be "great for Canada", media reports said.

McCallum told this to a reporter of StarMetro Vancouver.

"From Canada's point of view, if (the U.S.) drops the extradition request, that would be great for Canada," the ambassador has been quoted by CTV News.

Earlier McCallum had said Wangzhou can argue on several grounds to avoid her extradition.

Wanzhou was arrested on Dec 1 on the request of US authorities.

The US claimed Wanzhou had misled multinational banks over Iran-linked transactions. It also said the CEO had kept the banks in risk of violating US sanctions.

Though Wanzhou was granted a bail, she can still be extradited to the US.
