The Chinese media has a word of caution for the single-party communist government in Beijing over Huawei crisis with the U.S.

The U.S., France, and other Western nations have voiced fear that using Huawei base stations and other gear could give Beijing access to critical network infrastructure worldwide, possibly allowing it to spy on foreign governments.

On Tuesday, the 29th of January, 2019, the lawyer of Ms. Meng, the Huawei CFO and the daughter of Huawei founder, said that Chief Financial Officer of Huawei should not be a political hostage amid US-China trade war, after US had announced criminal charges against herself.

30 reported that the European Union is considering proposals that would effectively amount to a de-facto ban on Huawei Technologies Co. equipment for next-generation mobile networks on security grounds.

"It will be a setback for China's rise if Huawei, a high-tech giant among Chinese private enterprises, collapses under US pressure".

Asked about security issues with Huawei's products, Sondland said: "There is a lot of evidence, most of it classified".

January 29: China's foreign ministry says in a statement that Beijing will firmly defend its companies and urges the U.S.to "stop the unreasonable crackdown on Chinese companies including Huawei". "I have particularly enjoyed being part of a global company leading the world in innovation and technology advancement". In today's globalised world, all major ICT companies have global supply chains.

SYDNEY-A former Australian lawmaker retired from the board of the local arm of China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd on February 1, potentially weakening the firm's efforts to withstand government moves to restrict its market access on security grounds.

"This includes Australia, the EU, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, the Netherlands, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Spain, Denmark and most recently, NATO", read the statement.

Huawei Australia chairman John Lord this week said the company was being unfairly targeted.

Huawei has been excluded from a Czech tender to build a tax portal after the country's cyber watchdog warned of possible security threats, documents showed on Wednesday. "Huawei representatives declared that they complied with relevant standards", spokesman Jiri Ovcacek said on Twitter.
