China News recently reported that Chinese network equipment vendor Huawei insisted on its innocence in the situation in which the British government decided to conduct an investigation into Huawei’s Network Security Assessment Center in Britain. The investigation is in response to the requirement that the Intelligence and Security Committee of the British Parliament issued. Huawei suggested that the goal of its British operations is to enhance the security level of its customers. In 2012, Huawei invested 1.3 billion pounds in Britain. At the same time, Huawei also denied the accusation that former CIA Chief Michael Hayden made that it has been spying for the Chinese government. Huawei claimed that it purchases US$6 billion worth of products from U.S. companies annually, which generates tens of thousands of U.S. jobs. Huawei asked for the evidence that can support Mr. Hayden’s position.
