China really concerned about the NSA spying on Huawei

China really concerned about the NSA spying on Huawei
Yesterday, we told you that a recent report has revealed that the NSA has been spying on the servers of Huawei, one of the largest Chinese smartphone manufacturers, for a really long time. According to the report, the NSA has allegedly obtained sensitive data and monitored the communications between various high-ranking Huawei officials.

Just as it was expected, the information in this report also made it to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A representative with the institution, Hong Lei, today stated that China is “extremely concerned” about the intelligence scandal and requires an official explanation from the White House and the NSA in particular.


Allegedly, the NSA was trying to snoop on China's political elite, such as the ex-President Hu Jintao and various former and current Chinese ministers.

Maybe because the US found something for them to be concerned about.

US doesnt need to find something to be concerned about, they create it if not found... plain n simple

Or, the Chinese don't like it when their spying gets turned on them. Once Huawei gets penetrated, the Chinese cyber-spying ops become an open book to the NSA.

Their spying? there is no news that chinese was spying, this is your supposition/justification for NSA's spying... may be chinese were spying but NSA is a current focus at the moment

Both are extremely guilty of it. It's like two kids getting into a fight then complaining about their boo boos.

Exactly, and China is not one to talk when it comes to hacking and procuring sensitive information about the US and possibly many other countries.

Who isn't noisy about other countries... It's just sad that the world has to come to this... Let's just have the 3rd world war and end the humanity.

Huawei isn't losing a lot of business, they're popular in Asian and European countries.

I think China does not need to spy on smaller Asian countries. China has better resource than those smaller countries.

That's the main point they're a lot of resources in China. But if you lived in Asia you know what are they doing.

I feel pity for Huawei, they got accused for helping the Chinese government spying the US before and now this. Huawei is innocent and they're just like any other manufacturers that makes smartphones and tablets etc. Come on, just leave Huawei alone (I'm talking about you, NSA), a manufacturer isn't even related to a country and a country's relationship. Poor Huawei.

How do you know they were innocent? You see what happens behind closed doors or are you assuming and passing it off as fact?

And how do you know they are helping the Chinese government spying? No evidence right?

Hwawei is partly owned by the Chinese government. Almost all major companies in china are owned by the state or the very least the government are silent partner.

Innocent or not, I want good phones good competition... google, microsoft, apple all were providing users data to NSA.. should all these companies be banned for this act? if not then why to cry about huawie? Let them do the business like apple, MS, googs are allowed to do business despite alleged cooperation with NSA

innocent until proven guilty, remember? an accusation isnt an admission of guilt, nor is it actual proof

16. Ashoaib

Exactly, anyone anything can be blamed for anything... blame is a blame regardless of truth, then why huawie was forced to shut its operations in US?

I want that statement with the m$/nokia elop mole comment I still see daily.. Apparently the internet doesn't need proof to condemn
