Huawei to take up its espionage case with Joe Biden

We all know that former US President Donald Trump has pronounced a ban on the use of Huawei and its services on any of the IT infrastructure of public and private government agencies, as it was posing as a threat to national security.

Reason was that the products manufactured by the said company were indulging in espionage by snooping and sending recorded data from the devices to remote servers operating in China.

Therefore, the executive order which saw light in 2019 made Huawei ineligible to bid for 5G upgrades in North America.

CEO Ren Zhengfei is likely to meet the new President Joe Biden in this month to reconsider the ban order imposed by the FCC that can be otherwise solved via a conciliatory route.

“The FCC ruling was arbitrary and an abuse of direction and not supported by substantial evidence,” said the CEO of Huawei in his recent media interactions.

As there is a change in the US governance, we seek an opportunity to be reevaluated as there is no firm evidence that we were spying on the populace of America added Mr. Ren.

However, as per the sources from Biden administration, the new President and his team have no plans to soften their stand against adversary nations like China, Russia and North Korea.

Especially, after the latest revelation of SolarWinds cyber attack by FireEye Inc, the situation has turned negative for companies offering services from foreign soil, as Kamala Harris and team want to monitor every business deal, merger and acquisition deal from now on and check whether it could breach the national integrity by favoring adversary nations of North America.
