The Chinese tech giant Huawei which is facing a tough time at the present is not in the mood to turn away from the tech battle with the US, the company has stepped up its legal battle, and filed a motion in the US court seeking a quick determination on whether the case has merit to proceed or not.
Huawei previously filed a suit against the US in March, calling the banning move “unconstitutional” and saying the US Congress had failed to provide the evidence to support their restriction on Huawei products and their claims about Huawei working with Chinese intelligence to spy on the US.
Huawei’s chief legal officer Song Liuping said, “The US government has provided no evidence to show that Huawei is a security threat. There is no gun, no smoke. Only speculation”. He added “US politicians “want to put us out of business”.
The Chinese company is facing an extensive US executive order preventing companies in the US to use equipment made by Huawei, and also the US has placed the company on an entity list, cutting off support of critical American-made components for its smartphones and laptops. For now, the US has lifted the ban from Huawei, giving them a temporary relief of 90 days.
Huawei is the world’s largest supplier of telecommunications networking equipment and is currently at number two in the smartphone manufacturing race, but the tech giant is proving to be a bone on contention in making the China-US trade rivalry more worse.
Chinese state media today suggested its government that they could fight back in the trade war with the US by cutting exports of rare earth minerals to the United States, depriving US firms of key materials that are required to make everything from smartphones to televisions and cameras.
