China blocks canola shipments from Canada's Richardson: customs document

Germany won't ban Huawei from 5G buildup amid US-led crackdown on tech giant

In his latest statement, Huawei's rotating chairman Guo Ping pointed out that the US Congress hasn't been able to support its decision to ban Huawei products with sufficient shreds of evidence.

The Chinese businesswoman is accused of violating US sanctions on Iran by selling USA telecom equipment to the country via a Huawei subsidiary, Skycomm Tech, whose relationship to the Chinese telecom giant was cloaked.

"The US Government is sparing no effort to smear the company and mislead the public", said Mr Guo in a news briefing at Huawei's headquarters in southern China.

Huawei is also embroiled in a legal tussle over the December 1 arrest of Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities after an extradition request from the U.S. over allegations of bank and wire fraud related to breaches of US-imposed sanctions on Iran.

In November 2018, a federal appeals court rejected a similar lawsuit filed by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, which was challenging a ban on the use of the company's software in US government networks.

Separately, Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou is suing Canada over her arrest at the request of the US.

Huawei said it filed the lawsuit in the Eastern District Court in Plano, Texas where it has its U.S. headquarters. "No contrary evidence has been offered".

"PRISM, PRISM, on the wall, who is the most trustworthy of them all", he said, referring to the US National Security Agency's internet surveillance programme PRISM, which collected data from major internet companies. The world's top provider of networking gear faces the prospect of being shut out of pivotal infrastructure markets.

The Chinese government says Washington fabricates or exaggerates security concerns to block competition.

Huawei, based in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, is a leading developer of 5G along with rivals Nokia Corp. of Finland and Sweden's LM Ericsson.

It also accused the USA government of hacking its servers and stealing emails, while smearing the company without any evidence, and blocking its ability to compete in 5G technology around the world.

"In consultation with operators and vendors, we worked hard this year to see if there were ways to protect our 5G networks if high-risk vendor equipment was present anywhere in these networks". The company has announced contracts with customers including the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East for network technology. Canada approved extradition proceedings on March 1, but Meng has since sued Canada's government for procedural wrongs in her arrest.

One of Canada's largest grain processors has been blocked from exporting canola to China, and two Canadians detained by Beijing were accused of spying in a recent state media report.

"Huawei Australia is a $650 million business and our 700 employees continue to serve half the Australian population with safe and secure technology", they added. It has set up testing centres in Britain, Canada and continental Europe to allow governments to examine its technology.
