Huawei said Monday in a statement that it will continue to build a safe and sustainable software ecosystem to provide the best experience for all users globally.
The spokesperson said, “We have noticed that Google has suspended business with Huawei on software and hardware transfers and suspended the provision of related services to Huawei.
“We will formally confirm this matter and further actively follow the development of the situation. At the same time, China supports Chinese companies seeking legal means to defend their own legitimate rights,” said Lu.
Lu also said that the results of Europe's scrutiny on products by China's Huawei have proven the company's "innocence."
Lu made the remarks in response to German media reports that years of scrutiny by Britain, Germany and the European Union (EU) have found no obvious "backdoors" in Huawei products, while security loopholes are often spotted in products made by Cisco of the United States, as evidenced by ten "backdoor" incidents exposed since 2013.
"We'd like to see the US comment on the findings," Lu said, adding that since the "Prism gate" incident, the US has remained silent over evidence alleging its illegal practices of cyber attacks and thefts.
