On August 18, The Washington Times and some other U.S. Media asked the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. to make comments on some American Congressmen's effort to obstruct Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications provider, from bidding to sell equipment for the expansion of the wireless broadband network of U.S. mobile operator Sprint Nextel.
Spokesman of the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. Wang Baodong's Comments are as follows:I'm not aware of specifics of the Huawei-Sprint deal. But what I know is that Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd is a privately owned enterprise. Chinese corporations and enterprises like Huawei want to do business and make investment in the U.S. by following rules of market and on the basis of win-win for both. We hope that some people in the U.S. will take a rational approach toward these normal commercial activities rather than do anything to stand in the way by abusing "national security concerns" .
