A fight has broken out between China and the USA over the treatment of China's technology giant Huawei. The USA accused Huawei of a list of crimes, including bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud, and theft of trade secrets. The FBI explained: "The charges...are the result of years of investigative work.... [They] expose Huawei's...actions to exploit U.S. companies and financial institutions and to threaten the free and fair global marketplace."
China is angry over the treatment of Huawei. It said the U.S. was trying to "kill" Chinese businesses. China said: "The United States has deployed its state power to smear and crack down on targeted Chinese companies in an attempt to kill their normal and legal business operations." It urged the US to, "stop its unreasonable crackdown...and treat Chinese companies objectively and fairly....China will firmly safeguard...Chinese companies."
