Chinese foreign minister thrashed US charges against their telecom giant Huawei and told Beijing will take “ all necessary measures” for securing the “ legitimate rights” of the companies and individuals of the country.
The remarks of Wang Yi came as the US has lodged accusations against the company and a top executive over the violations of Iran sanctions while alerting Western allies to evade the firm over the security fears.
Wang told at a news conference, “ It’s quite obvious to any fair and unbiased person that the recent action against a particular company and Chinese individual is not just a pure judicial case but deliberate political suppression”.
Wang informed, “ We have already and will continue to take all necessary steps, and resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies and citizens”without any explanation what kind of measures would be taken by Beijing.
The remarks of Wang has come as Huawei is raising a legal and public relation based campaign to response over the US warnings that the equipment, as well as networks, could be utilized as Trojan horses by the intelligence agency of China.
Huawei declared that it had suited a case in the state of the United State , Texas for seeking the turnaround of legislation which prevents American federal agencies from buying is equipment and services.
Wang raised his voice to claim support for the lawsuit of Huawei, saying that the Chinese tech firm should not be a “ silent lamb to the slaughter”. The Chinese tech firm is struggling back after Canada imprisoned its Chief financial officer , Meng Wanzhou , in December on the order of the United States over accusations that she violated Iran sanctions.
