Beijing Responds to the “American Claims” on Huawei

China on Friday denounced US claims about Huawei, following remarks by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accusing the Chinese telecom giant of cooperating with Beijing.

“Not long ago, some political officials in the United States have repeatedly raised rumors about Huawei, but they have never been able to provide evidence,” said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang in response to a question on Pompeo’s remarks.

He added that at a time when Donald Trump’s “trade and technology war” on China was raising “more questions”, “these political officials (in the United States itself) continue to fabricate lies of all kinds in order to deceive the Americans.”

On Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China’s telecom giant Huawei was not sincere about its relations with the Chinese government.

“They say they are not working with the Chinese government is not right,” Pompeo told CNBC, referring to Huawei, which Washington imposed a ban on US companies dealing with them for security reasons.

“He does not tell the truth to the American people or the world,” he said.

Earlier, the US president announced that trade negotiations with China could include the file of the Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

“Huawei is very dangerous, and when you look at what they have done from a security point of view, from a military point of view, you find it very dangerous,” Trump told reporters.

“But Huawei could be included in a trade agreement,” Huawei said, adding: “If we reach an agreement, I see Huawei listed in one way or another,” without giving any further details.
