Chinese Telecom Hits Back Against US Spying Fears

Calls it "China-bashing"

|

Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Inc. lashed out Monday at a scathing congressional report, calling allegations that it may be spying on Americans and violating U.S. laws "little more than an exercise in China-bashing."

Huawei and a second Chinese telecom, ZTE Corp., launched aggressive global campaigns to counter the conclusions of the House intelligence committee report, which warned U.S. companies against doing business with the two firms.

The House intelligence-committee report concluded that Huawei and ZTE pose risks to national security because their equipment, when employed by U.S. companies, could become a vehicle for Chinese spying in the U.S. It also accused Huawei of engaging in bribery and violating immigration laws.
