Yet for years, the U.S. has been suspicious that the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment to spy on other nations, without providing specific evidence. It also claims the measure would limit the company's ability to sell its products in the United States. Its strategy for the U.S. is to argue that its government's actions in restricting Huawei's activities violate the country's own laws and even its written constitution.
USA authorities "have hacked our servers and stolen our emails" but have presented no evidence to support their security claims, Guo said.
Founded in 1987 by a former military engineer, Huawei overtook Ericsson in 2017 as the biggest global supplier of network equipment. We have also invested substantially in the American telecommunications industry, including by establishing partnerships with hundreds of USA companies.
It says the law causes the company "concrete and particularized injury, and imminent future injury" and subjects it to a "burden that is severe, permanent and inescapable" that amounts to a corporate "death penalty".
There are fears that China is using Huawei as a proxy so it can spy on rival nations and scoop up useful information. By singling out the company and punishing it without a trial, the company also argues that the law violates the Constitution's bill of attainder clause.
Guo Ping, the company's rotating chairman, said the ban is illegal and prevents the company from "engaging in fair competition", which harms American consumers.
The bill that bans Huawei, signed by jobbing TV actor Donald Trump, best known for his appearance as "Waldo's Dad" in a 1994 episode of The Little Rascals, is the same one that brought ZTE to the edge of bankruptcy, before a "deal" allowed them to keep trading in return for a $1bn payment to the US Treasury. Industry analysts say excluding the Chinese vendor from markets for 5G equipment would reduce competition and might lead to higher prices. The court statement came after a federal court in Seattle, Washington, announced charges against two of the company's businesses in January. The U.S. government has charged her with lying to banks about doing business with Iran.
The surprise arrest of Huawei's chief financial officer in December quickly turned the executive, Meng Wanzhou, into a central figure in a trade war between two economic superpowers. "It has never asked and will not ask Chinese companies to do anything against foreign laws and regulations".
He stressed that Huawei equipment was not being used in sensitive parts of the 5G network, which Vodafone plans to start rolling out later this year. He added that Huawei has the right to defend its business through the legal system.

Wilson-Raybould said she would be willing to appear before the justice committee if asked to give additional testimony. May went on to accuse Trudeau's staff of making "veiled threats" against the attorney general over the Lavalin matter.
Huawei said it had filed a complaint in a federal court in Texas challenging the constitutionality of Section 889 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a section signed into law by the USA president in August that banned federal agencies and their contractors from procuring its equipment and services.
Huawei says the new law would shrink its potential US market further by prohibiting the government from buying the Chinese vendor's technology and from buying goods or services from or giving grants or loans to companies or other third parties that do.
The United States makes up 20 to 25 percent of the worldwide market for computer and telecom technology.
Brooklyn prosecutors discussed the relationship between Huawei and HSBC, a bank that was required to cooperate with United States prosecutors in any investigation until the end of 2017 for violating United States anti-money laundering and sanctions laws, the person added.
The ban is "based on numerous false, unproven and untested" accusations, the company's chief legal officer, Song Liuping, told reporters.
The announcement follows months of debate over whether to side with the United States and some allies in barring Huawei from 5G networks due to security and espionage concerns.
Australia, Japan, Taiwan and some other governments also have set limits on using Huawei technology.
Some European officials and others cite a Chinese security law requiring companies to cooperate with intelligence agencies they say might oblige Huawei and other tech companies to install "backdoors" in equipment to allow eavesdropping.
"Huawei has not and will never implant 'back doors, ' " said Guo, the chairman.
