Two Canadians imprisoned in China since 2018 were free and on their way home, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada announced Friday night.

The release of the two men, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, was made public just hours after the U.S. Justice Department reached an agreement that cleared the way for Huawei Technologies’ chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, to return to China in exchange for admitting wrongdoing in a fraud case.

The Canadian authorities arrested Ms. Meng, 49, in December 2018 at Vancouver International Airport, at the request of the United States, which put Canada square in the middle of a diplomatic standoff between two of the world’s superpowers.
