Huawei calls on U.S. to adjust its approach to tackle cybersecurity effectively

Accepted submission by James Orme at 2019-05-29 08:23:20

Chinese tech giant Huawei has filed a motion in a US court challenging the constitutionality of a law that limits its sales of telecoms equipment, the latest action in an ongoing clash with Washington.

Huawei’s chief legal officer Song Liuping said the firm had filed a motion for summary judgment asking the court to rule on whether it is constitutional for the US to implement a military spending provision that bars the government and its contractors from using its equipment.

Mr Song said the “state-sanctioned campaign” against the company will not improve cybersecurity.

“Politicians in the US are using the strength of an entire nation to come after a private company,” he said. “This is not normal.”
