Monday 2 December 2013 | 10:15 CET | News
Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei Technologies has withdrawn from the US market, reports China's Global Post newspaper citing comments by founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei. According to Chinese news portal 163.com, Zhengfei said the move was made to protect Chinese-US relations. He said that Huawei had withdrawn from the US telecoms equipment market, but added that its mobile phones still sold well in the country. He stressed that the company's mobile phones could not be viewed as a security threat because they use US-made software.
