Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Needs cyber-security to be viewed as a technical rather than ideological Dilemma and is open to supervision by European governments to prove the Stage, a senior company executive is expected to State on Thursday evening.
The remarks due to be delivered in a language by Abraham Liu, Huawei’s primary representative to EU institutions, come as the firm finds itself under fire over ties with the Chinese authorities and feeling that Beijing could use its technology for hacking, and that the company denies.
Liu will reiterate that Huawei has not and would never harm the interests of customers or nations.
“Cyber-security should stay as a technical problem rather than an ideological matter. Since technical problems can always be resolved through the ideal solutions while ideological problem cannot,” Liu will say in the company’s Chinese New Year reception in Brussels, according to a copy of his speech observed by Reuters.
“We are always willing to accept the oversight and hints of European governments, customers and partners.”
Liu will say that Huawei devices, analyzed by numerous regulators and telecoms operators, haven’t caused any serious cyber-security breaches.
The USA has launched a campaign to convince European allies not to utilize gear in the world’s biggest producer of telecoms equipment for 5G networks, citing security risks.
Germany has said it wants high data security standards because of its 5G network.
