Huawei Chief: Company Not a Cyber Threat to US

HuaweiPhoneRen Zhengfei, founder and CEO of Chinese telecommunications company Huawei Technologies, has denied claims that his company poses a cybersecurity threat to the U.S., Reuters reported Thursday.

Lee Chyen Yee writes Zhengfei spoke to the media for the first time during a visit to New Zealand, where the company won contracts to establish 4G LTE broadband networks.

He told reporters that Huawei has never sold any telecommunications equipment to U.S. providers or any U.S. government agency, according to the report.

Huawei is the second-largest telecom equipment manufacturer behind Ericsson but has failed to sell its products in the U.S. because of national security concerns, according to Reuters.

The House Intelligence Committee in October recommended U.S. companies not use Huawei nor ZTE as suppliers and for agencies to not acquire products from either company.
