The Chinese company has said that the decision by some EU countries to ban Huawei from supplying 5G infrastructure is based on “political motivation”, as it defended its legacy and ongoing investments in the region. Abraham Liu, Huawei’s chief representative to the EUsaid that Huawei has been forced to rethink its global strategy after former US President Donald Trump blacklisted the company over concerns it was using equipment to spy on the American government. Unfortunately for Huawei, a significant number of European governments followed the United States’ lead. Liu, who manages the relationship between Huawei and European institutions, did not directly say why some countries have banned the 5G infrastructure provider, but defended Huawei by emphasising the company’s long-standing footprint in Europe.
