Huawei in Muted Launch of Korean 5G Hub

"Politicians in the US are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company", Song said in a press conference in Shenzhen on Wednesday.

Song said the us blacklist could affect " more than 3 billion customers" of Huawei in 170 countries.

A recent legislation banning USA government agencies from using and purchasing Huawei equipment has specifically brought up friction.

While the ban is intended for Huawei, it has ramifications on over 1,200 American companies and, along with it, thousands of American jobs.

It's not the first time (even this year) Huawei has signalled an intent to plead their case in a United States court.

Huawei has been under a U.S. embargo for several months now following fears that its technology could be used to help Chinese state surveillance - a claim it strenuously denies.

The U.S. ban on Huawei has already affected some wireless providers, reported The New York Times over the weekend.

The company has effectively been frozen out of the U.S. telecoms market due to fears that its equipment is a national security risk.

"As a courier company operating in China for decades, FedEx has the obligation to cooperate with the investigations of relevant Chinese authorities", CCTV said. Huawei relies heavily on US components, including computer chips, and about one-third of its suppliers are American.

A similar previous action against Chinese telecom company ZTE almost put it out of business, before it accepted a massive fine to resolve the situation.

Reacting to Huawei's complaint, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told reporters here that the USA courier company owes an explanation. Glen Nager, a partner at the Law Firm Jones Day, accused the actions of the us government "as a response of Huawei's alleged misdeeds and supposed associations with the Chinese government Communist Party", and that this was a breach of constitutional rules.

The telecoms kit manufacturer is arguing that section 889 of the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) 2019 is unconstitutional under United States law because it singles out a single entity - Huawei itself - for "trial by legislature". "We hope that mistakes in the NDAA can be corrected by the court", Song added.

Mr Trump, who is negotiating a trade deal with China, last week told reporters the software company could become part of that pact.

The move has already affected the company's USA partnerships.

The hearing on Huawei's motion is set to be held in September.

'Today it's telecoms and Huawei, ' he said. China responded by raising tariffs of 5 per cent to 25 per cent on $60 billion worth of American goods. There is no gun, no smoke and only speculation, said Huawei.
