Founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, has warned US in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on Monday (18th) that if the United States do not trusts Huawei, Huawei will transfer investment to the United Kingdom. He also said that his daughter, Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Xizhou was arrested with political motives.
Ren Zhengfei said during his visit: “First of all, I oppose the practice of the United States. This politically motivated behavior is not acceptable.”
He also said: “If the United States does not trust us, then we will transfer investment from the United States to the United Kingdom and make a larger investment.”
He pointed out that the United States cannot break Huawei in anyway. He’s also very sure that people cannot leave Huawei because their technology is more advanced.
“Even if they persuade more countries to abandon us, we can scale down at any time.” He added.
According to media reports, the National Cyber Security Center of the United Kingdom has resolute that there is a way to manage the risk of using Huawei equipment in the future 5G ultra-high-speed network. Several companies, including Vodafone, EE and Three are working with Huawei to develop their 5G networks.
Meng Xiazhou was arrested in Canada on December 1, 2018, and the happening triggered a diplomatic storm involving China, the United States and Canada. Ren Zhengfei had previously denied that Huawei supported the Chinese government in spying activities.
“We are not going to risk the displeasure of our country and our customers around the world, for something like this. Our company will never undertake any espionage activity. If we have such actions, then I will close the company. “
The economic war between the United States and China has reached a particularly critical point because of this issue.
