While the move may force the USA government to provide more details on the ban, most legal analysts see the action more as a public relations gambit for Huawei, which has found its global image shattered over the previous year amid increasing scepticism about its close ties to the Chinese government.

Huawei has filed a lawsuit against the United States government over a ban that restricts government agencies from using its products.

"The US Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products".

The lawyer for Huawei Technologies' Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou told a Canadian court on Wednesday that he has concerns allegations against her have a political character and raised U.S. President Donald Trump's comments on the case.

Huawei accuses the USA government of hacking its servers and stealing its emails and Huawei source code, as well as attempting to influence United States allies and other governments worldwide to enact similar bans against the Chinese company. "It is an abuse of the USA lawmaking process".

On Thursday, Guo said that "Huawei has not and will never implant "backdoors".

He cited "harmful organisms" that he did not identify further, and said China's government "needs to protect the health and safety of its own people".

Update 2 (9:31PM EST): Huawei brings up that US companies have weak "cyber security hygine" as the data breaches that happened over the past few years such as Equifax were all unrelated to Huawei. -China trade talks. The State Department Wednesday told VOA that her case is a law enforcement matter, and Canada is honoring its treaty obligations by considering the US extradition request. Huawei is willing to address the U.S. Government's security concerns.

The move comes as Washington tries to persuade allies to ban Huawei from business alleging espionage risks.

Huawei is also accused, via two affiliates, of stealing trade secrets from USA telecommunications group T-Mobile.

The United States has accused Meng - Ren's daughter - of bank and wire fraud related to breaches of trade sanctions against Iran.

Meng's December 1 arrest at the Vancouver airport set off a diplomatic furor that severely strained Canadian relations with China.

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

Meng's arrest by Canadian authorities has given rise to increasing diplomatic tensions between Canada and China.

There had already been reports last month that Canadian canola shipments to China had been slow to clear customs amid the dispute.

"PRISM, PRISM, on the wall, who is the most trustworthy of them all", he said, referring to the US National Security Agency's internet surveillance programme PRISM, which collected data from major internet companies.

Shifting tone, Ren in mid-February said Meng's arrest was politically motivated and "not acceptable".
