The U.S. government's claim that 'Huawei can prove to be able to penetrate mobile networks' was made by Robert O'Brien, Assistant Secretary for National Security Affairs , through the Wall Street Journal. Until now, the U.S. government had taken the position that it did not intend to provide concrete evidence for Huawei's allegations, but due to the urgency that allies such as Germany and the United Kingdom failed to eliminate Huawei, the policy change It is thought that we planned.

O'Brien points out that Huawei sells telecommunications equipment to carriers around the world with backdoors that have no known carrier. It claims that Huawei's connected law enforcement agencies have been able to secretly intercept smartphones and other communications around the world for more than a decade.

Huawei issued a media statement in response to the Wall Street Journal and the US government. In a statement, 'Huawei has never, and never will, have access to telecommunications networks. The Wall Street Journal apparently realizes that the U.S. government cannot provide any evidence to support their claims. Still, I chose to repeat the lies spread by the U.S. government, 'he said, blaming the Wall Street Journal's press for bias in Huawei.

Huawei also said in a statement, `` As evidenced by Edward Snowden 's leak, the U.S. government had secretly accessed telecommunications networks around the world and spied on other countries for quite some time. '' He pointed out that he had counterattacked that the U.S. government had intercepted communications in the first place.

In June 2013, a leak by Mr. Snowden, a former member of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) , led to a statement that the NSA's International Surveillance Network (PRISM) was charged. A scandal has occurred.

Huawei is not only Snowden's case, but also the Swiss-based international crypto maker Crypto, which was actually run by the CIA and the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) , a German intelligence agency. Mention the press. 'The Washington Post report is new evidence of how the CIA has used crypto companies to spy on other countries for decades,' Huawei says.

Regarding allegations that Huawei had a back door, Huawei said, `` Huawei's role as a communications vendor, like other vendors, is to use equipment that conforms to 3GPP and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) standards. To provide it. ' Huawei only provides a lawful intercept interface, even though it is obliged to comply with lawful intercept standards that allow law enforcement agencies to work with carriers to monitor individual subjects under judicial and administrative orders. Huawei himself claims that he cannot intercept the communication.

Although lawful intercepts themselves have requirements in almost every country, only the carriers and law enforcement agencies actually manage and operate the lawful intercept interface, and only employees hired by governments in each country are allowed. Huawei points out that it is located in an intercept facility. Huawei claims to be a supplier of telecommunications equipment, and has not developed any equipment or functionality to access network communications and obtain data through carriers or security systems.

'We are very indignant that the U.S. government has spared no effort to use cybersecurity issues to stigmatize Huawei,' Huawei said. If you do, we will ask you to disclose certain evidence, rather than spread the word through the media. '
