SHENZHEN -- Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei said Monday that there are "absolutely no backdoors" in Huawei's equipment and the company is willing to sign no-backdoor agreements with other countries.

He also said issues of network security and information security should be viewed separately.

The network of human society must not be prone to problems as it connects 6.5 billion people and tens of millions of banks and countless enterprises. Thirty years of applications in 170 countries have proven that Huawei's network, which serves 3 billion people, is secure, Ren said.

However, information security is another question, Ren said. He described Huawei as a provider of "pipelines" and "faucets," saying operators and content providers must be responsible for contents "running in the pipelines."

Ren made the remarks when having a dialogue with US futurist George Gilder and Nicholas Negroponte, co-founder of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab, at Huawei's headquarters in Shenzhen.
