Commentary: Protectionism behind groundless U.S. accusation against Chinese tech firms

By Jiang Hanlu (Xinhua)

BEIJING, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- A report of the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee that blamed two leading Chinese technology companies, Huawei and ZTE, for possible threats to U.S. national security is totally groundless and comes out of protectionism.

The report, which was released Monday, fancied that China has the means, opportunity and motive to use telecom firms for "malicious" purposes.

Malicious hardware or software implants in Chinese-made telecom components and systems could serve as a potent espionage tool for penetrating sensitive U.S. national security systems, the report, based on wild guesses, alleged.

Turning a blind eye to the two companies' good record, the report suggested Huawei may be violating U.S. laws. But it failed to substantiate its claim with evidence.

In an open and competitive global market, the golden rule for an international company's sustainable development lies in consistent and strict observation of local regulations and laws. Huawei's and ZTE's great success and world reputation speak for themselves and serve as counterevidence to U.S. claims.

Established in 1987, Huawei has become the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker, serving one-third of the global population in more than 140 countries.
