Huawei CLO goes online to plead his company’s case in its war with the U.S. government

The U.S. government’s blacklisting of the Chinese telecom company Huawei Technologies has dealt that company a severe blow. Not only has Huawei shown a loss, but Japan’s SoftBank announced that it will build its 5G cellular network with Nokia and Ericcson equipment. Huawei had supplied 4G equipment to Huawei, so the latest move comes as a severe blow to the Chinese company, which critics have cited for its connections to the Chinese government.

The result? A public relations battle, and perhaps a trade war over Chinese exports of rare earth minerals, which are essential to manufacture electronic devices and accessories.

Now Huawei has taken the unusual step of having its chief legal officer, Song Liuping, post a video on the business-oriented social network LinkedIn. Liuping, in a short statement he reads online, charged that “politicians in the U.S. are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company. They are using every tool they have, inc legislative, administrative and diplomatic channels. They want to put us out of business. This is not normal.”

Continuing, he says that “the U.S. government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat. There is no gun, no smoke only speculation. This is trial by legislature and it is prohibited by the US const. We believe this sets a dangerous precedent. Today it’s telecom’s Huawei. Tomorrow it could be your industry. Your company, your consumer.”

Over to you, America.
