Washington’sanimosity towards Chinese tech giant Huawei is based on deep-rooted prejudice,while its crusade against the company is motivated by greed rather thansecurity concerns, the firm’s chief security officer said.
The persistentscaremongering campaign by the US targeting the Chinese company, which is oneof the pioneers in 5G technology development, appears to have got under theskin of one of its top executives, who hit back in an explosive rant.


Suffolk also alleged that the US launched thiswhole campaign against Huawei not because it fears for its sensitiveinformation, which it claims could allegedly be stolen by some notoriousChinese cyber-spies directly through the products offered by Huawei, but becauseAmerica itself wants to monopolize the market of new technologies and get ridof its competition.


“America says it wants open competitionbut then says: ‘Huawei, you can’t work in America – you’re banned.’ My beliefis America should face up to competition, it should face up to competitionbecause American citizens will benefit.”
He alsodismissed security concerns voiced by the US, calling them absurd and addingthat such statements only “belittle” thereal security problems.
“I’mwaiting for [the US State Secretary] Mike [Pompeo] to come back and say we’vebanned the trouser belt from being made in China because it’s a national securityrisk and armies can’t fight with trousers round their ankles.”


Prejudice or ‘ignorance’?
Suffolk also said that US officials are apparently just toostubborn in their prejudices against Beijing to ever treat Huawei fairly; headmitted he did not believe the company would ever be able to convince Washingtonthat it does not pose a security threat.
“Allwe can do is say: ‘Guys, if you want to come and look, come and look. If youwant to come and test, come and test. If you want to do verification, you aremore than welcome to. We don’t believe there is much more we can do.”
Meanwhile,another Huawei top executive, Peter Zhou, who is in charge of rolling out 5G,said that US politicians were just “ignorantof technology” and could not understand how it really works.He admitted he had often to “explainit to them like I do to my kids”.
Anyway, the US was up in arms against Huawei for quite some time.Over recent months, Washington banned federal agencies from using Huaweiproducts, prompting the company to file a lawsuit over what it called unfaircompetition; Washington also has spared no effort in attempts to prevent itsallies from even thinking about cooperation with the Chinese tech giant.

The US has even threatened to stop sharing intel with countrieswhich allow Huawei to build 5G infrastructure. However, so far it has failed toprovide a single piece of evidence suggesting that the Huawei technologiesmight indeed be used for spying.
While some nations, such as New Zealand and Australia, took the USwarnings at face value and banned Huawei from taking part in its national 5Gnetwork development, others were much more reluctant to follow the US lead.
In March, the European Commission ignored US calls to ban Huawei,but urged member states to continue assessing any cybersecurity threats.Several European nations indeed made their own assessment of the potentialthreat posed by the company’s products and came to the conclusion that therewas nothing to fear.
Belgium wasthe latest to say it found no proof of any “spying threat”posed by Huawei tech. Earlier,similar statements were made by Germany’s cyber security watchdog.
