Huawei willing to sign ‘no-spy’ agreements with governments, says chairman

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order as early as this week that could pave the way for banning USA companies from using equipment from Chinese telecom giant Huawei, Reuters reported Tuesday.

The Huawei logo stands on a Huawei office building in Dongguan in China's southern Guangdong province on 18 December 2018.

Huawei is "willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments" including the United Kingdom, its chairman Liang Hua said.

"There is no mandate in (China's national intelligence) law that we have to had over customer data or intelligence that we do not wish to hand over or we think should be sensitive".

Trump has reportedly been weighing the order for over a year, and if he moves ahead, it will add to the gravity of the US-China trade war that has escalated over the past two weeks. The order will direct the Commerce Department, working with other government agencies, to draw up a plan for enforcement, the sources said. Soon, the same might be true for USA companies.

"This is neither graceful nor fair", ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a news briefing in Beijing. In December, Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng was arrested in Canada on suspicion of violating US sanctions concerning Iran.

Canadian authorities last December arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of the USA, which seeks her extradition over allegations of violating Iran sanctions. Meng remains under house arrest in Vancouver while the legal proceedings unfold. And the order might eventually name specific companies or countries as Commerce carries out the process.

The United States has been actively pushing other countries not to use Huawei's equipment in next-generation 5G networks that it calls "untrustworthy".

It follows concerns from some countries that China could use products made by the telecoms firm for surveillance. "No spying, no backdoors", said Liang.

According to a Reuters report Wednesday, president Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order that would bar USA companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies which pose a national security risk.
