ADVERTISEMENTThe U.S. argues that Beijing might use Chinese tech companies to gather intelligence about foreign countries. The U.S. government is trying to “fabricate an excuse for suppressing the legitimate development” of Chinese enterprises, said the spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry, Geng Shuang. No country in Europe, however, has issued a blanket veto on using Huawei technology in the way the U.S. has urged. That has prompted some industry analysts to suggest Washington is trying to use security concerns to handicap Chinese competitors. Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre admitted last summer that it had concerns about the engineering and security of Huawei’s networks.
