BEIJING (Reuters) - The Chinese prosecution announced Friday that it has charged two Canadian nationals with alleged espionage, the latest episode in a conflict that has created a diplomatic abyss between Ottawa and Beijing.

Former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor were arrested in late 2018 on charges of national security, after the arrest in Vancouver of Meng Wanzhou, chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies Co's , under a mandate from the United States.

China has charged two detained Canadians with spying in cases linked to Canada ’s arrest of a Huawei executive on U.S. charges . Chinese prosecutors said Friday, June 19, 2020, that Spavor and Michael Kovrig have been charged .

In December, the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs announced the closure of the investigation against the two Canadian nationals and the transfer of the file to the Chinese public prosecutor.

The impeachment represents the next step in the legal process against the two Canadians and means that a formal trial can begin.

Michael Spavor is accused of spying on national secrets and illegally transmitting them to entities outside of China. For his part, Michael Kovrig is accused of spying on national secrets and intelligence for entities outside of China, according to two opinions posted online by the Chinese public prosecutor on Friday.

Canada has described these arrests as "arbitrary". The Canadian Embassy in Beijing was not immediately available for comment on Friday.

If China assures that these arrests are not linked to that of Meng Wanzhou, former diplomats and experts believe that they are used to put pressure on Canada.

Last month, Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of the founder of telecoms giant Huawei, lost a legal battle to prevent his extradition to the United States where he would face charges of bank fraud. .
