China said on Wednesday that the EU’s decision to impose a ban on Chinese technology giant Huawei would be a “brazen” violation of the values of free trade, a market economy, and competitiveness that the “EU claims to champion.”
Huawei has never compromised the security of any European nation since it began operating in Europe many years ago, according to Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin, in response to allegations that the EU is considering making it illegal for companies to use Huawei to build 5G networks.
On the contrary, he went on to say, it has given a “strong” boost to Europe’s telecommunications sector and generated “considerable” socioeconomic benefits.
“The US and some European countries keep alleging that Huawei poses a security risk, but have failed to show any evidence,” he said.
This, he added, is a “typical presumption of guilt and disinformation.”
“The US’s whole-of-government suppression of Huawei, a private Chinese company, is a textbook example of coercive diplomacy and tech bullying,” he alleged.
He said that Beijing hopes the EU “will honor its commitment to those principles, steer clear of politicizing economic and trade issues or overstretching the concept of security, and make economically sound decisions that are in keeping with its own interests.”
