  • China blocks canola shipments from Canada's Richardson

"We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said in a statement.

Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei on Thursday confirmed it is suing the USA government over a section of a defense bill passed into law past year that restricted its business in the United States.

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

The legal action compares with a more restrained response in December emphasizing "trust in justice" after the arrest of CFO Sabrina Meng Wanzhou.

As the trade talks drag on, with few outward signs of significant progress, a bipartisan group of Senators, including Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn, are calling for expanding the ban on Huawei equipment so it can not be used in US energy infrastructure.

Her lawyers said they needed more time to prepare a defense, which would include alleged abuse of process.

They say that Huawei-with Meng personally involved-misled US banks about the relationship between Huawei and Hong-Kong based Skycom Tech, which did business with Iran.

Meng appeared in a British Columbia court for a scheduled hearing, during which her lawyer Richard Peck raised the issue and referenced "comments by the U.S. President" without going into detail.

As the global rollout of 5G approaches, Australia's former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has brought attention to the fact that the Five Eyes nations (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the US) do not have any telecoms capable of winning the 5G race.

European governments are balking at US pressure to ban Huawei.

From Huawei's perspective, the NDAA restrictions prevent the company from providing more advanced 5G technologies to U.S. consumers, which will delay the commercial application of 5G, in turn, impeding efforts to improve the performance of 5G networks in the U.S. Beyond this, network users in rural and remote regions of the U.S. will be forced to choose between government funding and high-quality, cost-effective products.

Huawei's ties to the Chinese government have come under scrutiny, and the U.S. has called the Chinese phone giant "duplicitous and deceitful".

Trump has said he'd intervene in the case if that helped secure a trade deal with Beijing. China, the world's top importer of canola, says it pulled the company's shipping registration over insect infestation concerns, though many see the measure as retaliation against Ottawa over Meng's arrest, the Canadian Press reported.

Shifting tone, Ren in mid-February said Meng's arrest was politically motivated and "not acceptable".

Meng's arrest by Canadian authorities has given rise to increasing diplomatic tensions between Canada and China. Moreover, Huawei has an excellent security record and program.
