Huawei's rotating chairman Guo Ping has said that Huawei has not, and will not ever, implement backdoors in its products, and it will not allow other parties to do the same.

Chinese tech giant Huawei is challenging a US law that labels the company a security risk and would limit its access to the American market for telecom equipment.

'The U.S. Congress has repeatedly failed to produce any evidence to support its restrictions on Huawei products.

Andy Purdy, the chief security officer for Huawei's USA business, defended the company in an interview with Cheddar in January, saying that "no government has ever asked us to spy" and calling the accusations part of a "drumbeat of anti-Huawei criticism".

A Canadian court on Wednesday set a May 8 date for the start of Meng's hearing into a US extradition request over charges that she and Huawei circumvented USA sanctions against Iran.

Huawei in a statement said it has filed a complaint in a US district court in Texas challenging its addition to the US National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA). "US Congress has simply attacked as lawmaker, prosecutor and juror at the same time, contrary to the American constitution", Song said.

The privately owned firm embarked on a public relations and legal offensive as Washington lobbied allies to abandon Huawei when building 5G networks, centring on a 2017 Chinese law requiring companies to cooperate with national intelligence work.

"[We are willing to] work with the U.S. president and his administration to find a solution where Huawei products are available to the American people and the national security of the United States is fully protected", Song said.

Huawei has about 40 per cent of the global market for network gear.

Huawei, based in Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, is a leading developer of 5G along with rivals Nokia Corp. of Finland and Sweden's LM Ericsson. Industry analysts say excluding the Chinese vendor from markets for 5G equipment would reduce competition and might lead to higher prices.

Huawei has confirmed it will launch a lawsuit against the United States government over its decision to ban the Chinese telco from government contracts.

The move comes amid a conflict between the countries over Canada's arrest of a Chinese technology company executive and is seen by some as a new tactic to achieve leverage over Ottawa.

Meng's arrest by Canadian authorities has given rise to increasing diplomatic tensions between Canada and China.

One of Canada's largest grain processors has been blocked from exporting canola to China, and two Canadians detained by Beijing were accused of spying in a recent state media report.

Washington has long considered Huawei a potential threat, fears originally centring on the background of founder Ren Zhengfei, a former Chinese army engineer.

Though more broad, it's likely that the United States government ban will have a similar effect on Huawei there; with all the large carriers likely to provide services to the USA government in some shape or form, they are effectively prevented from including any Huawei equipment in their service offering.
