Huawei has strengthened its counter-attack against the US-led ban on the company's products, with a bizarre press release issued Tuesday that imposed a number of startling claims against the United States while providing no evidence to support them.
In the wake of news that the US Department of Justice is conducting further investigations of the beleaguered Chinese tech giant due to claims of intellectual property theft, Huawei accused the United States of the "unscrupulous" behavior press release. Behaviors that include the United States allegedly launching cyberattacks against the company.

"In recent months, the US government has used its political and diplomatic influence to lobby other governments to ban Huawei equipment," the press release states. "Furthermore, it has used every tool available ̵
These tools include, according to Huawei, the United States launching "cyberattacks to infiltrate Huawei's intranet and internal information systems." It also allegedly includes the deployment of FBI agents to the homes of Huawei employees to pressure them to collect dirt on the company, as well as named US citizens allegedly pretending to be Huawei employees "to establish legal pretense for unfounded charges against company. ”
That's not even the extent of it, with Huawei also claiming that the United States is conspiring with companies that either work with Huawei or have a business conflict with it to try to bring unsubstantiated charges against the company.
Huawei has not released anything in addition to the press release as comment or supporting evidence to back up its claims. All of this comes as the bad news has come inexorably this year for the company, which has had to confront the fall of a US-led opposition campaign stemming from allegations of intellectual property theft and national security concerns.
The company struck back as this was probably to be expected, not that it had much effect as yet. And the bad news is constantly coming. Huawei's upcoming Mate 30 flagship, for example, is set to launch on September 19, but Google has said it will not provide a licensed version of Android for the device, and will effectively reach it outside of China.
