Bengaluru, NFAPost : The Chinese government opposes the politicisation of technical issues by individual countries and believes India will make an independent judgment and provide a fair business environment for the Chinese enterprises to invest and operate.
The statement comes following India’s Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had raised security concerns over allowing Huawei to participate in 5G network trial for 5G services.
“We hope and believe that India will make an independent judgment and provide a fair, just and non-discriminatory business environment for the Chinese enterprises to invest and operate, so as to achieve mutual benefit and win-win results,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement issued to IANS.
The Chinese government has never supported any enterprise to engage in any activity that would pose a threat to the legitimate security interests of other countries and opposes the politicisation of technical issues by individual countries,” the Ministry added.
It also said more and more people around the world have shown a fair attitude towards the participation of Chinese technology enterprises in the field of 5G network services.
The Ministry further said China has always asked its enterprises, including Huawei, to abide by the local laws and regulations of the countries where they are doing business.
India is a vital market for Huawei and China knows the impact it might have on it, if India does not allow Huawei to participate in 5G network services trial.
The controversies surrounding Huawei, especially the accusation of espionage for the Chinese government, seem to have worried New Delhi that shares tense relations with Beijing.
The world’s largest telecom maker is under the spotlight after US President Donald Trump government banned Huawei from buying technology and equipment from American companies.
The US also have warned of punitive action if Indian companies were found supplying equipment or other products of American origin to Huawei or its units.
Huawei, which is founded and run by former People’s Liberation Army officer Ren Zhengfei, has been accused of sharing foreign data from other countries with the Chinese government, a charge denied by both Beijing and Huawei.
