Huawei network works over 170 countries: Spokesperson

BEIJING, July 31 (INP): Over the past 30 years, Huawei has developed over 1,500 networks in more than 170 countries and regions, having 228 Fortune 500 companies as clients and serving more than three billion people all over the world.

This was stated by a spokesperson of Chinese Foreign Ministry Wang Wenbin while commenting on allegations that Huawei threatence US national security,

“Not a single cybersecurity incident like those revealed by Edward Snowden or WikiLeaks has there been. Not a single tapping or surveillance operation like PRISM, Equation Group or ECHELON has there been. And not a single country has produced evidence of any backdoors in Huawei products.

The US claims to be a defender of democracy and freedoms, but what we have seen is some American politicians including Pompeo incessantly pressuring other countries, making uninvited comments about their 5G development and openly coercing them into following its own will.  This is hegemony in full display.

The US keeps talking about fairness and reciprocity, but what does it do? When other countries’ businesses have a competitive edge, American politicians would make up excuses and resort to state power to suppress them.

They would go to any length for this, violating market economy and fair competition principles the US always claims to champion, breaking international trade rules, even hurting the interests of US consumers and businesses.

The real reason behind US’s state leader Pompeo’s animosity towards Chinese companies has nothing to do with national security or democracy, freedoms, fairness or reciprocity. It’s just because they are Chinese companies and also front runners in their lines of business.

Pompeo has been claiming that by excluding Huawei, countries are joining the ranks of “clean countries”. The so-called “clean countries” he has been touting is nothing but a code name of double standards.

We hope all countries will commit to uphold a fair, just, open and non-discriminatory business environment and reject nationality discrimination in global scientific cooperation as firmly as they reject racism, ” he added.
