He said, it was ineffective to dismiss Washington's campaign against him.

The Chinese telecommunications giant has not yet received any interest from US companies to purchase the intellectual property that underlies its 5G technology – a vacancy has arisen earlier this year after it has been blocked in the US – but the proposal still on the board, has been added.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Huawei founder 75 years of convincing tone age struck the recent Trump administration's movements against the company, and also praised the US entrepreneurial spirit.

“We can live very well without the United States,” said Mr Ren. “China-US. there is nothing to trade talks. ”

Mr Ren said that Huawei is not a factor in the trading war as “we have almost no business dealings in the US” he also said “there was no confrontation with the US” and said he would welcome a visit from Mr Trump now or after leaving office.

“We'd definitely welcome him,” said Mr Ren.

In May the United States Huawei contributed to the Department's Commercial “list of entities”, which prevented many American suppliers from doing business with the Shenzhen-based company. Huawei, the world's largest manufacturer of networking equipment and smart phone vendor, emerged. 2, as a central issue in the trade war also, and Beijing has claimed a repayment as a condition for any deal.

and

Microsoft Corp.

Huawei executives say that the company is building its full portfolio of 5G networking products with no American technology, by a clip of 5,000 base stations per month.

“We don't expect the US to get Huawei from the list of entities,” said Mr Ren. "They might keep us there forever because we will be fine without them."

However, Huawei executives say that the company is still buying technology from American companies. The chips manufactured by U. companies at offshore factories, for example, are not usually subject to U. restrictions, legal experts said. This enabled some American companies, including chip manufacturers

Intel Corp.

and

Qualcomm Inc.,

to resume sales to Huawei.

Will Zhang, president of Huawei's corporate strategy, said in an interview that US technology purchases are 70% to 80% of its previous level.

Washington was one of the many anti-Huawei actions in the past year, a security threat. US officials put pressure on the Huawei allies to keep off their 5G networks, and last December in Vancouver, the Canadian authorities seized Mr. daughter's daughter. Ren—

that is also CFO Huawei – at the National University of Ireland.

However, Huawei continues to win 5G contracts worldwide, although its smart phone sales – particularly in China – are growing despite uncertainty over its continued access to Google's Android operating system. Firstly, Mr Ren predicted income from $ 30 billion from the enlistment this year and the next, but the company said revenue for the first nine months of the year increased by 24%.

Mr Ren initially offered 5G to the US, earlier this year as a way to help him come up, and raise money to fund research and development, and Huawei budgeted about $ 14.5 billion last year. The United States has no major seller of cellular networking equipment. Huawei's main competitors in this sector are Sweden

Ericsson

AB and Finland

Nokia Corp.

“We are absolutely loyal in our offer to license our 5G technology to the US,” said Mr Ren. He said the US could “pass on Huawei” in three years.

The United States defends its actions against Huawei by mentioning concerns that Beijing could use its equipment to do spying. It also states that Huawei would be legally bound to comply with requests for customer data from Beijing.

Mr Ren repeatedly denied that any government was spying on any government and said he would refuse any such application from Beijing.

When asked that Huawei could be sure that none of his nearly 200,000 employees worldwide are engaged in espionage on behalf of a government, Mr Ren informed the company's compliance guidelines.

“We don't allow breaches,” he said. “If there were any employees who did such a thing, they would be severely punished.” T

Huawei did not have access to the data running through those networks, Mr Ren insisted by analogy.

“Like car manufacturers, we only sell equipment,” he added, “Carriers build pipes and make sure information flows smoothly through the pipes, and we produce the iron sheets on top of the pipes. What could we do with iron sheets? ”
