"Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behavior, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business". "Cyber-security is our top concern and as an independent global company we are totally committed to supplying the best possible and safest technology to our clients".

Huawei, the global networks market leader with annual sales exceeding $100 billion, faces worldwide scrutiny over its ties to the Chinese government and suspicion Beijing could use its technology for spying.

Australia, New Zealand and Japan have already effectively excluded Huawei from their 5G rollouts, and countries including Canada have been considering following suit.

The company has suffered a number of setbacks in recent months because of apparent concerns over its security.

These partners "have publicly endorsed their trust in Huawei". It also recently hit Huawei and its chief financial officer with charges of bank fraud, obstruction of justice and intellectual property theft.
