The US put sanction on Huawei to trade a couple of weeks ago which “sets a dangerous precedent”. The firm’s top legal officer said that it will hamper billions of consumers.
Song Liuping said in a press conference that the trade ban would also “directly harm” to the American companies and affect jobs.
Washington recently added Huawei to a list of companies that US firms cannot trade if they don’t have a license. The trade ban also shows the battle between the US and Huawei. The Chinese company is the world’s largest maker of telecoms equipment. Washington has blocked the Chinese companies for national security concerns.
But Huawei doesn’t accept the claim of the use of its products presents security risks and says it is free from the Chinese government.
Mr. Song said, “Politicians in the US are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company”.
He added, “This decision threatens to harm our customers in over 170 countries, including more than three billion consumers who use Huawei products and services around the world.”
“By preventing American companies from doing business with Huawei, the government will directly harm more than 1,200 US companies. This will affect tens of thousands of American jobs.”
He furtherly added “The US government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat. There is no gun, no smoke. Only speculation.”
So, a hearing on the motion has been set for upcoming 19 September.
