Italian Government Divided Over Huawei, Amid US Pressure

Huawei’s rotating chairman Guo Ping and CEO Richard Yu will face a prominent US lineup at the Mobile World Congress

For example, since Huawei's equipment is not used in the U.S. networks, is the United States having the most secure network?

In a letter to Norman Lamb MP, chair of the science and technology committee, Ryan Ding, an executive from the controversial Chinese technology company, pledged to spend £1.5 billion over five years to address security issues flagged last year.

The U.S. has been citing national security as a reason behind excluding Chinese equipment, alleging their hardware could provide backdoor access to the Chinese government to harm American networks. It's not as easy for a Chinese company to say no to its government as it might be for, say, Apple to deny an Federal Bureau of Investigation request here in the US.

Other countries are carefully monitoring the Huawei situation, with its' chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who is the daughter of the company's founder, having been arrested in Canada a year ago at the request of the United States over alleged violations of Iran sanctions.

In one of the strongest public remarks, a senior representative of Chinese technology giant Huawei on Thursday night rebutted fear-mongering against the company.

The law mandates any organisation and citizen to support and assist national intelligence in their investigations and to keep information related to such investigations.

The letter was in response to concerns raised by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) in its annual report, a body that includes Huawei, UK operators and UK Government officials.

In January, a Huawei employee based in Poland was arrested and charged for spying. "Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business".

China is livid and strongly demands the return of the executive, and has responded by arresting two Canadians in China on charges of posing a danger to Chinese security, A third Canadian arrested on drug charges has seen his case suddenly retried and the sentence increased from a jail term to the death sentence. Australia, New Zealand and Japan have all banned Huawei as a wireless network provider over similar security concerns.

Huawei has offered to launch a cyber security center in Poland, Tonny Bao, head of the company's Polish unit, said on Wednesday. "We are ready to establish a cyber security center in Poland if authorities accept this as a trusted solution", Bao said.
