The spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mao Ning, has stated that the United States' campaign against Chinese companies is not driven by national security concerns.
During a press conference today, Mao Ning emphasized that this is an attempt to hinder the development of Chinese firms through unlawful and unfair means at a time when the US has been unable to take the lead in the race.
This response comes in the wake of the United States' penetration of Huawei's main headquarters' servers, dating back to 2009.
Tensions between China and the United States in the technology sector have escalated, particularly following Huawei's announcement of its new smartphone equipped with electronic processing chips.
This move prompted the US government to initiate an official investigation into how Beijing acquired these chips, especially after Washington imposed stringent restrictions to limit China's access to such technology.
The accusations and counter-accusations between the US and China underscore the ongoing technological rivalry and trade tensions between the two global superpowers.
