Huawei has filed a complaint against the US government for implementing a ban on federal agencies from using its products citing national security concerns.
Huawei rejected the claims of involvement with the Chinese government.
In the lawsuit filed against the US government, telecommunication company explained that the US didn’t provide the evidence which favor ban. The firm also denied the claims of involvement with China.
Earlier, the US has implemented a ban on using Huawei products over national security concerns and also urge allies to avoid the Chinese telecoms firm.
The firm filed a lawsuit to challenge statements that its products pose security risks. According to Rotating Chairman Guo Ping, the US Congress didn’t provide any “evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products”. He said that “we are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort”.
In a press conference at Shenzhen, Guo Ping further called the ban unlawful which restricts “Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming US consumers”.
Guo Ping is addressing with a press conference.
Mr. Ping also criticized the US government for misleading the public about Huawei. The firm’s Cyber Security Chief John Suffolk called the company “a most open [and] transparent company in the world”.
However, the company receives criticism for cutting the live feed of its press conference before questions.
The firm’s latest lawsuit also challenges the constitutionality of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorisation Act. The company filed the complaint in a US federal court of Texas. Huawei further said that the tech company never ‘owned, controlled, or influenced’ by China.
Many countries including Australia and New Zealand have already restricted the telecoms companies from using Huawei stuff mentioning security concerns.
