Embattled Chinese telecom giant Huawei has entered not guilty pleas to 13 federal criminal counts.
The plea was made Thursday in a New York federal court.
Prosecutors allege Huawei used a front company to engage in trade with Iran, which is a violation of U.S. sanctions.
Prosecutors also allege the daughter of Huawei’s founder and the company’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, lied to banks about the Iran dealings.
Meng was arrested in Canada late last year, and she is currently fighting extradition to the U.S.
China has demanded that Meng be released.
Both Meng and Huawei deny the charges against them.
