Huawei says it is ready to sign ‘No-Spy Agreement’ with the U.S
Speaking to a group of US journalists on a visit to the China-United States Exchange Foundation, Huaweiâ€™s Chairman Liang Hua expressed his companyâ€™s willingness to sign a â€œnon-espionageâ€ agreement with the US government and with anyone who will require it.
â€œWe are willing to sign a no-spy agreement with the U.S.â€Â
The Hill quoted Huaweiâ€™s Chairman Liang Hua, as saying.
â€œThe U.S. has not bought from us, is not buying from us and doesnâ€™t have plans to buy from us. So, I donâ€™t know if thereâ€™s an opportunity to sign such an agreement.â€
Liang went on to say that it is inappropriate to use politics to harm a company likeÂ Huawei, but it shows great acumen in attempting a softer approach. At the moment the Trump administration does not seem to be in a hurry to resolve the commercial situation, but some progress could be made at the G20, scheduled for the weekend.
Meanwhile, David Daokui Li, president of economics at Tsinghua University, says that Trumpâ€™s move could hurt Huawei in the short term but could strengthen the long-term of the Chinese giant: â€œWhat President Trump is doing is waking up Huaweiâ€™s dormant abilityâ€.
It is worth to mention that new information shared onÂ TwitterÂ reveals that the new Mate 30 series will have a new Kirin 985 chip and will debut with the HongMeng operating system, the Huawei alternative to Android, in China.
The Huawei Mate 30 series could debut around September 22, which is an improvement over previous years. What is not clear is whether the international models will also have HongMeng as everything related to the use of Android byÂ HuaweiÂ is unavailable at the moment.
A more recent report stated that the company could announce its new OS this June. The Chinese company has also registered the nickname of Ark OS (Huawei OS â€˜Hongmengâ€™ could be known as â€˜ARK OSâ€™ globally). It remains to be seen if the international versions of the Mate 30 series will come with Ark OS.
