(Reuters) – The United States has resumed talks with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd and lawyers for Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou about a possible deffered prosecution agreement for the Chinese executive that could allow her to return to China, the Globe and Mail reported on Friday, citing Canadian sources.

The report stated that the United States would be willing to stop Meng’s extradition requests and criminal prosecutions if Meng pleads guilty, and she pays a substantial fine.

According to two sources, the U.S. Department of Justice had been in negotiations for several weeks with Meng’s lawyers and the company, according to the report.

Reuters asked Huawei and U.S. Department of Justice to comment but did not receive any response.
