Huawei Technologies Co. pleaded not guilty to US charges of trade-secret theft, a day before the company learns if Canada will start extradition proceedings for its chief financial officer in a pivotal week that could see diplomatic tensions flare.
The cases are U.S. v. Huawei Device Co., 19-cr-00010, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington (Seattle) and U.S. v. Huawei Technologies Co. The United States has asked its allies to ban 5G gear from Huawei. Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia have acquiesced. "The world needs Huawei because we are more advanced".
Also in the Middle East, Saudi Telecom Company signed an "Aspiration Project" contract with Huawei, which contains E2E wireless network modernization and 5G network construction, the Chinese company said.
Prosecutors say one Huawei worker even removed the robot's arm from T-Mobile's lab, took detailed measurements and photos of it, and then sent the information about it to China; the company says the worker acted independently and was later fired.
"We believe that the DoT (department of telecommunications) is making an effort to carefully study cyber security issues, which is part of the efforts of the global industry to build and strengthen universal cybersecurity standards, which will eventually be used as the basis to judge whether all vendors' equipment are secure or not, based on data and facts", Chen said. "Actually Chinese law is same with that of many countries", Chen said.
The executive said that within 20 days of the allocation of the trial spectrum, the company will launch 5G field trials with partner telcos.
Trade talks between the United States and China are far from completion, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told lawmakers Wednesday, but President Donald Trump raised hopes earlier in the week when he said he would postpone a scheduled March 2 increase in tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports. "If we get spectrum for trials, within 20 days we can start the 5G trials involving all stakeholders".
The song has been criticised and mocked by many internet users who said it was overly nationalist. We have been talking to the government.
