BEIJING - Chinese telecoms giant Huawei has denied any wrongdoing after US prosecutors filed a host of criminal charges against the firm.

Huawei has also rejected criminal claims against its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Canada last month.

The charges filed against Huawei in the US include bank fraud, obstruction of justice and theft of technology.

The case could escalate tensions between China and the US.

In a statement, Huawei said it was "disappointed to learn of the charges brought against the company today".(FA)
