Huawei is suing the USA government

China blocks canola shipments from Canada's Richardson

"We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", said Huawei's Rotating Chairman Guo Ping in the statement.

The Chinese tech giant announced on Thursday local time that it has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government over a law which which bans government agencies from buying or using their equipment.

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

In November 2018, a federal appeals court rejected a similar lawsuit filed by Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, which was challenging a ban on the use of its software in US government networks.

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

Huawei's Chief Legal Officer Song Liuping also noted that Huawei hadn't had a chance to defend its "excellent security record" because the ban had come into effect without due legal process.

The lawyer for a senior executive of Chinese tech giant Huawei arrested in Canada said comments by U.S. President Trump suggest the case against her is politically motivated.

Huawei is suing the United States over a government ban on its products, raising the stakes in a protracted diplomatic incident between China, the USA and Canada, where a Huawei senior executive is facing extradition.

The NDAA bans the USA government from doing business with Huawei or compatriot peer ZTE Corp or from doing business with any company that has equipment from the two firms as a "substantial or essential component" of their system.

The US Justice Department accuses Huawei and Ms Meng of circumventing US sanctions against Iran.

Huawei is increasingly in the crosshairs of the USA government and its allies, just as it's pushing for leadership in supplying fifth-generation wireless technology.

Trump said in December that he would possibly intervene in the criminal trial if it could help him to secure a trade deal with China.

In an explosive press conference, Huawei also accused the USA government of smearing Huawei's name, hacking into its servers and stealing its emails and proprietary code.

Huawei's ties to the Chinese government have come under scrutiny, and the USA has called the Chinese phone giant "duplicitous and deceitful".

Huawei said it hopes the USA removes this section so it can work with the US and President Donald Trump.

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

Australia's ties with China have deteriorated since 2017, when Canberra accused China of meddling in its domestic affairs.

The Chinese embassy statement has said that due to "obvious political interference", Canada should refuse the USA extradition request and release Meng.

"Consumers in the United States (particularly in rural and poor areas) will be deprived of access to the most advanced technologies, and will face higher prices and a significantly less competitive market", the company said in the complaint.
