VANCOUVER - A Canadian judge ruled on Tuesday that Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, who was detained by Canadian authorities at the request of US authorities, can be released on bail.

Meng denied any charges from the United States during the hearings.

The comments came after a judge ruling granting a C$10 million (US$7.5 million) bail to Meng.

"We look forward to a timely resolution of this matter," Huawei said. The company highlighted again that it complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries and regions where it operates, including export control and sanction laws of the UN, US, and EU.

The Canadian authorities arrested Meng at the request of the US on Dec 1. Under the bail conditions, Meng can stay at her Vancouver home.
