Mr Ding said in his letter last week that the company "has never and will never" use its equipment to assist espionage activities.

Other countries are carefully monitoring the Huawei situation, with its' chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who is the daughter of the company's founder, having been arrested in Canada past year at the request of the U.S. over alleged violations of Iran sanctions. It also recently hit Huawei and its chief financial officer with charges of bank fraud, obstruction of justice and intellectual property theft.
