China’s Huawei Technologies fought back Monday against a US congressional report that accused the telecommunications giant of violating US laws and potentially spying on Americans, The Wall Street Journal reported. Huawei has launched a global campaign to counter the report, which it called “little more than an exercise in China-bashing.” Huawei, as well as ZTE (000063.SHE, 0762.HKG), another Chinese telecom company under investigation in the US, have aimed to expand into developed markets. The accusations could potentially prompt further investigation and taint public perception of the companies, two of the world’s biggest makers of telecom devices. Huawei’s chief spokesman in Washington William Plummer described the company as a punching bag for Americans wary of China. Meanwhile, the company has also denied any plans to list in the US, partly due to its complicated shareholding structure, Caixin reported.
