Huawei has been under political pressure from the US and other countries, which have accused the Huawei of being a security risk because it could help the Chinese government. Huawei has repeatedly denied that it would help China if asked.
“We would never follow anyone’s instructions to install backdoors. It will never happen,” Ren said.
Huawei’s founder and CEO, Ren Zhengfei, said, the American security complaints have helped bring attention to Huawei – a good advertising for Huawei.
“For such a powerful country to be scared of a small company like us, some other countries are saying, ‘Your products are so good that the U.S. government is scared. We won’t test your products. We’ll buy them directly.’ That’s why some deep-pocketed countries with rich oil reserves are buying from us. They are buying our products in large quantities as the U.S. government is advertising for us,” Ren told CNBC.
