Huawei has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government for a ban that restricts federal authorities from using their products.
She said that the US had not provided evidence to support the ban, and the company also rejected claims that it had links with the Chinese government.
The US has restricted the use of Huawei products because of national security concerns.
There were also lobbyists who wanted to evade the Chinese telecommunications company.
Huawei is one of the world’s largest telecommunications equipment suppliers and service providers.
The lawsuit is part of a broader drive of the company in recent months to challenge the claims of its products for safety risks.
“The US Congress has repeatedly submitted no evidence of its restrictions on Huawei products. We are forced to take these legal steps as a real last resort,” said Huawei CEO Guo Ping said in a statement.
“This ban is not only illegal, but also restricts Huawei’s competitiveness and ultimately harms US consumers.”
At a press conference in Shenzhen, Mr. Ping also accused the US government of being misleading Huawei and hacked its Server.
What does the lawsuit say?
Huawei questions the constitutionality of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act. The lawsuit was filed before a U.S. Federal Court in Texas.
Huawei also rejected claims that it had links with the state and stated in a statement that the company was “not owned, controlled or influenced” by the Chinese government.
Several governments around the world, including Australia and new Zealand, have blocked Telecom companies from Huawei gear in the next-generation 5g mobile networks, citing security concerns.
