The charges, contained in two newly unsealed indictments, allege that Huawei misrepresented its ownership of a Hong Kong-based subsidiary to circumvent American sanctions against Iran.
Chinese tech giant Huawei - the world's biggest supplier of network gear used by phone and Internet companies - was charged by the Justice Department on Monday with 13 felonies including fraud.
Senior officials of the Trump administration gathered at the Department of Justice in Washington to announce criminal indictments against Huawei, the largest Chinese smartphone maker; its USA affiliate; the Hong Kong-based Skycom; and Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer, for conspiracy that poses a national security threat to the US.
The announcement Monday includes a 10-count grand jury indictment in Seattle, and a separate 13-count case from prosecutors in the Eastern District of NY.
Canadian officials arrested Meng on a USA warrant on December 1. Huawei and Skycom are charged with bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud, violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) and conspiracy to violate IEEPA, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Huawei is accused of stealing robot technology from T-Mobile for building smartphones.
The cases accuse the company of everything from bank and wire fraud to obstructing justice and conspiring to steal trade secrets from T-Mobile US Inc.

The seriousness of these charges primarily surrounds Huawei's alleged violation of the US sanctions against Iran.
Mr Wray said the charges are the results of years of investigative work carried out by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States law enforcement.
These US charges come the day after Canada fired its ambassador to China, days after he publicly said the US extradition request for Ms Meng was flawed.
Whitaker said the criminal offending at Huawei went "all the way to the top of the company".
He reaffirmed that the U.S.is seeking extradition of Meng and would formally file for the extradition by Tuesday, Canada's deadline.
The U.S. government is trying to prevent American companies from buying Huawei routers and switches and is pressing allies to do the same.
Mr Ren denies his company's products would be used by the Chinese government to spy.
