China accuses US of ‘double standard’ over Huawei claims

BEIJING — The U.S. is using a double standard in claiming Chinese law requires telecoms giant Huawei to violate other countries’ information security, a Chinese government spokesman said Monday.

Some U.S. officials were taking China’s national security law out of context and “playing up the so-called security risks” associated with Chinese companies, the spokesman for the national legislature, Zhang Yesui, told reporters.

Zhang said the 2017 law borrows from other countries’ experiences and is designed explicitly to “protect human rights and the lawful rights of individuals and organizations.”
