Chinese spying?: Huawei says U.S. has 'no evidence' of 5G spying allegations

Guo also said that an executive order against Huawei "is not necessary and should not be released", adding that the possible ban would hurt small telecom companies in the United States that rely on Huawei's equipment, which is often cheaper than their rivals' technology. USA officials fear the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment to electronically eavesdrop on global internet traffic. What we promise, is that we don't do anything bad: "we don't do bad things", Guo said in a keynote speech at the information industry's highest-profile gathering. "Please choose Huawei, thank you", he said.

Guo Ping, Huawei's rotating chairman, used his keynote speech at MWC Barcelona to fight back against US allegations that the company's technology poses a national security risk to next-generation mobile networks.

Arguing that cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, Ping urged security companies, telecoms providers and governments to work together to build safer networks - especially with regards to 5G.

His comments echoed those of Vodafone boss Nick Read, who called on Monday for the United States to share any evidence it had about Huawei, while the European Commission warned against "premature decisions based on partial analysis of the facts".

'We know that Huawei itself has been duplicitous and deceitful'.

Asked whether the Chinese state has a stake in Huawei, Guo said it was 100 percent owned by its past and present employees. Xiaomi's offering will start at 599 euros (US$679) when it hits the market in May. "We take this responsibility very seriously", Guo said.

Woods missed the birdie putt but still carded a useful 66 to move into the top 10 alongside Tyrrell Hatton. At one point during the third round of the WGC-Mexico Championship, Dustin Johnson's lead was six.

The worries about Huawei have already convinced some Western countries to bar or restrict the company's access to their markets, but Europe is split.

"They are going to be able to talk to the whole world (at the trade show), reassure their clients and also show that they are continuing to do their work", he added.

Washington has seen the Mobile World Congress as an opportunity to counter that and sent a delegation to brief governments there, they said. So for best technology and greater security, choose Huawei.

Huawei responded by branding escalators and delegate lanyards with its red-fanned logo, and unveiling a new state-of-the-art folding smartphone in an effort to reassert its status as a leading technology giant.

USA officials suspect that Beijing could use the Shenzhen-based Huawei's products to spy on Western governments, and the company's presence in the United States has already been severely restricted. Suri said that wouldn't do enough to safeguard networks.
