Huawei's founder denies presence of'backdoors for spying

Zhengfei has denied all the accusations hurled against the tech giant, telling the BBC that "there's no way the United States can crush" the company.

Reuters reported earlier yesterday that British security officials do not support a full ban of Huawei from national telecoms networks despite usa allegations against the Chinese firm.

Ren also lashed out at the USA, saying that the arrest of his daughter and Huawei CFO, Meng Wanzhou, was politically motivated.

Ren accused Washington of leading a politically motivated investigation into his firm.

"There's no way the USA can crush us", Ren said in an interview with the BBC on February 18th. "This kind of politically motivated act is not acceptable", Mr Ren said.

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned countries not to use Huawei technology and said that doing so would make it harder for Washington to "partner alongside them". We object to this. "But now that we've gone down this path, we'll let the courts settle it".

There's no way the USA can crush us.

"The world needs Huawei because we are more advanced. Even if they persuade more countries not to use us temporarily, we can always scale things down a bit", he said.

Just as the United Kingdom has indicated a level of trust in Huawei, so Huawei indicates that the feeling is mutual.

Ren said that Huawei "will still [have] trust in the United Kingdom, and we hope that the United Kingdom will trust us even more".

Labour will back an amendment which would force Mrs May to delay Brexit if she can not get her deal through Parliament. May lost support from both the hard-Leave and hard-Remain factions of her own party, leading to the motion failing.

"We will invest even more in the UK". We will invest even more in the UK.

The Trump Administration has been pushing other countries to avoid using Huawei's communications equipment in critical infrastructure, arguing that such gear could be used to share intelligence with the Chinese government.

"The Chinese government has already clearly said it won't install any backdoors". Ren has denied accusations Huawei helps spy for Beijing, saying he would never hurt his customers. "And we won't install backdoors either".

Ren's daughter Meng was arrested in Canada on December 1, 2018, upon request from the United States.

Several countries, including the US, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Taiwan have previously blocked Huawei from taking part in their 5G network development.

The BBC interviewer then asked Ren, "What kind of impact would it have on your business if the United States is successful in getting many of its partners in the west to shut your equipment out?"

Ren has said repeatedly that Huawei would "never undertake" any spying activities.

The problem for the United States, of course, is that Huawei doesn't need it to be successful.

Mr Ren is right, the USA makes up only a fraction of his overall business.

Still, some signs of close links between Mr Ren and the government were revealed during the course of our interview.
