China’s state-rum media Global Times published an editorial to support Chinese telecommunication equipment maker Huawei because it is suing the U.S. government. The lawsuit claims that the ban on the use of Huawei products by all government agencies in the United States based on the U.S. “National Defense Authorization Act of 2019” (NDAA) is unconstitutional. Huawei said that the US government has been smearing Huawei, but has never provided any evidence to support its allegations that Huawei threatens cybersecurity.
The article stated, “This is a counterattack Huawei made because of the United States’ escalating pressure and persecution. … Because the U.S. harbors ulterior motives and has an obvious political purpose in suppressing Huawei, Huawei’s prosecution is not a radical move even from the Western perspective. It has a very solid reason.
The article continued, “As long as Huawei can prove that its equipment is indeed advanced and clean, and it has done its best to dispel people’s doubts. Then if it wins the lawsuit, it shows the failure of the US government; if it loses, the prestige of the US judicial system will be swept away.”
“We support Huawei in hiring the best and most famous lawyers in the Western world to form a “dream team” for justice. Through this lawsuit, the world will see how rude and vicious the U.S. government is in suppressing the Chinese companies Huawei, ZTE, and others. As everyone knows, the U.S. crackdown on these companies reflects Washington’s loss of rationality towards China’s rise.”
“American public media institutions have concealed the truth and acted in concert with the government’s persecution.”
