 US officials spread Huawei Threat to the Foreign Ministry: Cisco and Apple should be guarded against

On September 16, 2019, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying hosted a regular press conference. The following is a partial record.

Reporter: Over the past few years, several US officials have lobbied Huawei around the world. During his visit to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain with the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, U.S. State Department Assistant Chief Steyer said on Tuesday that Huawei must be excluded from 5G network if the U.S. side wants to ensure the security of network framework. We note that the South China Morning Post just quoted Bloomberg as saying that the American Semiconductor Industry Association sent a letter to U.S. Commerce Secretary Ross on November 11, hoping that the U.S. Department of Commerce would take immediate action to approve the sale of products to Huawei. What is Chinas comment on this?

Hua Chunying answered: For some time, the United States has not only abused its national power to suppress specific Chinese enterprises, but also stirred up fire and smeared attacks all over the world. This kind of behavior violates the basic market spirit and international rules, and is disgraceful and immoral. The United States has concocted and disseminated Huawei as a 5G cyber security threat, but so far it has never produced any evidence, nor has any country, organization or individual used any evidence to show that Huawei poses a threat to it. In May, the German Daily Mirror reported that after years of review, the British government, the German Federal Information Security Office and the European Commission did not find that Huawei had a clear back door, but there were security loopholes in Cisco equipment in the United States. Since 2013, there have been 10 back door incidents. As early as 2014, Apple admitted in a statement that it could extract personal data such as text messages, address books and photos from the backdoor of its mobile phone system. In 2018, Facebook was revealed to have backdoors in its user accounts. Facebook spokesman has admitted that they can view user information at any time. According to the exposure of Prism Gate incident. In front of the US intelligence service, Americans have almost no personal privacy in their telephone, documents, voice and so on. Thirty-five other countries, including their alliesleaders, had their calls eavesdropped, some for as long as 10 years, and it was American companies like Cisco and Apple that monitored and monitored them.

These are open facts. Without any prejudice, can we draw such a conclusion? If countries want to ensure network security, they should not be prepared for Huawei, China, but Cisco and Apple in the United States. The head of Huawei has made many clarifications and commitments on security issues on various occasions. Can the United States also make an open commitment?

I would like to point out that supply chain security issues always exist in the process of ICT development and iterative evolution, and are not unique to 5G or a company. We firmly oppose the artificial creation of the so-called Hua5G security issue and the abuse of national security reasons to restrict normal ICT development and cooperation among Chinese enterprises. On the premise of fairness, impartiality and non-discrimination, countries should make in-depth discussions on the real supply chain security issues and put forward feasible suggestions to jointly guarantee the security of information technology products and services.
