Chinese company Huawei sues U.S. government, accuses them of stealing emails

Huawei filed a lawsuit against the USA government Wednesday night, alleging that federal actions to block the Chinese company from selling equipment or services to the government or any related entities are unconstitutional.

Guo said the U.S. government had "mislead the American public" regarding Huawei and "never presented evidence" regarding its allegations against the company.

As the trade talks drag on, with few outward signs of significant progress, a bipartisan group of Senators, including Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, are calling for expanding the ban on Huawei equipment so it can not be used in USA energy infrastructure.

The most recent high-profile target was South Korean retailer Lotte, which sold land to the Seoul government for a USA anti-missile system opposed by Beijing.

"This is one part of a much broader effort here to confront China over trade secrets theft and how the Chinese government is subsidizing companies and trying to get their products into the United States", Henning said. Canada arrested her at the request of the USA, where she is wanted on fraud charges for allegedly misleading banks about the company's dealings with Iran.

Some saw that as retaliation for Canada's arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Chinese tech giant Huawei.

"Lifting the NDAA ban will give the US Government the flexibility it needs to work with Huawei and solve real security issues", Guo said.

The US Justice Department accuses Huawei and Ms Meng of circumventing US sanctions against Iran.

Huawei has fired the latest salvo in its battle with the USA, confirming it has brought a lawsuit against the USA government over a ban on its telecommunications equipment.

China suspended a trade deal with Norway and restricted imports of Norwegian salmon after the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Chinese political prisoner Liu Xiaobo in 2010.

While Meng is under house arrest in Vancouver, it is unclear where the two Canadians are being detained in China.

Washington also tried to pressure other governments into banning the company's products.

The company and its various executives offered an impassioned view as to why the USA ban on Huawei should be overturned, in addition to citing legal reasons why the move was unconstitutional.

Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei later said Meng's arrest was politically motivated and "not acceptable".

Asked whether other countries such as Australia that have been pushing back on using Huawei technologies could face similar legal action in the future, Elena Collinson, a senior project and research officer at the Australia-China Relations Institute at the University of Technology in Sydney, said even if it did the likelihood of success would be low.

A week later at the Mobile World Congress, where Huawei unveiled the world's most expensive foldable phone, Rotating Chairman Guo Ping opened his speech with a jab at the United States. Moreover, Huawei has an excellent security record and program.
