Huawei held a press conference in Shenzhen, China, where it announced that they filed a complaint in a US federal court to challenge the legality of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Section 889. The company also claimed that the US congress has failed to give any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products.

According to Huawei, Section 889 of the 2019 NDAA not only blocks all US government agencies from having their products, but it also bans them from contracting with, or awarding grants or loans to third parties who buy their services.

Moreover, the Chinese mobile maker claimed that the said section is based on numerous false, unproven, and untested propositions.

“This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming US consumers. We look forward to the court’s verdict, and trust that it will benefit both Huawei and the American people,” Ping addressed.

In addition, Huawei explained that they are not owned, controlled, or influenced by the Chinese government.

“At Huawei, we are proud that we are the most open, transparent, and scrutinized company in the world,” John Suffolk, Huawei Global Cyber Security and Privacy Officer, said. “Huawei’s approach to security by design development and deployment sets a high standards bar that few can match.”

Also, the company promised that if this law will be set aside, Huawei can bring more advanced technologies to the US, and help it build the best 5G networks.
