Huawei Accuses U.S. Of Trying To Disrupt Its Business
Huawei accused the U.S. of cyberattacks and pressuring its employees.
Chinese tech giant Huawei has accused the U.S. of disrupting its business, including pressuring its employees to collect information on the company and using cyberattacks to infiltrate the company's computer systems.
Huawei listed out nine accusations against the U.S. in total in a news release Tuesday, but didn't provide any specific evidence to back them up. In the release, it also said law enforcement in the U.S. have searched, detained and even arrested Huawei employees and its partners.
In the news release, the company also denies stealing smartphone camera technology from a Portuguese multimedia producer. In late August, the Wall Street Journal reported U.S. prosecutors are investigating additional instances of alleged technology theft by the tech company. Huawei denied those accusations as well.
The U.S. believes Huawei poses a national security threat. In January, the Department of Justice charged Huawei and its chief financial officer with working to bypass U.S. sanctions on Iran. In May, the U.S. placed Huawei on essentially a trade blacklist, barring it from doing business with U.S. companies without government approval. But it's been allowing certain exemptions until later this year to avoid disrupting existing technology.
