Drama? Wtf? It’s not a drama it is a real threat cuz china is a communist nation governed by communist government and huawei is directly related to that communist government. You just cant think of chinese companies in terms of privately owned companies in western countries.

So is Apple directly related to the Chinese Government?, they receive billions each year from them, receive huge tax breaks from them, they got a factory and 10 square miles of campus for free from them. If thats not directly related i don't know what is. So who is the spying really coming from? In 2014 The New York Times reported, based upon documents leaked by Edward Snowden, that the U.S. National Security Agency has since 2007 been operating a covert program against Huawei. This involved breaking into Huawei's internal networks, including headquarter networks and founder Ren Zhengfei's communications.
