The US Department of Justice charged Chinese telecoms giant Huawei, its CFO, and two affiliates with bank and wire fraud, stealing trade secrets, and obstructing justice on Monday.




It comes as President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet with top Chinese trade negotiators on Wednesday and Thursday to try and resolve ongoing trade war tensions.




Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the Huawei charges will not affect trade war tensions.




But the Chinese government is furious. Experts say the Huawei saga could scupper trade talks.



President Donald Trump is heading for incredibly tense trade talks with China this week, as Beijing's anger at the US for indicting telecommunications giant Huawei and its CFO threatens to derail the two countries' already-strained economic relationship.
Trump is expected to meet top Chinese officials — including Liu He, China's vice premier and top trade negotiator, and People's Bank of China Governor Yi Gang — at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, DC, on Wednesday and Thursday, in the hope of ending the trade war.
They will address China's policies on intellectual property, technological transfers, and US demands that Beijing buy more American goods and services, Bloomberg reported.
