"The specific relationship between Meng's late boat incident and the general environment still needs more details to be released, but it is easy to make people associate." Professor Chen Qi, Director of the Center for Sino-US Relations and Professor of International Relations, School of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University, said.
On the morning of December 6, Huawei officially announced that recently, Ms. Meng Wangzhou, our CFO, was temporarily detained by the Canadian authorities on behalf of the U.S. government when she changed planes in Canada. The United States is seeking the extradition of Ms. Meng Wangzhou and is facing unspecified charges in the East District of New York.
"There is very little information available to Huawei about specific allegations, and Huawei is unaware of any misconduct by Ms. Meng. The company believes that the legal systems of Canada and the United States will eventually come to a fair conclusion.
Huawei also stressed that it complies with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries where it operates, including those applicable to the United Nations, the United States and the European Union for export control and sanctions.
China strongly protests the detention of Meng's late boat by Canada. A spokesman for the Chinese Embassy in Canada, speaking at a consultation on the arrest of Chinese citizens by Canada, said that the Canadian police, at the request of the United States, had arrested a Chinese citizen who had not violated any laws of the United States and Canada. China firmly opposed and strongly protested this serious human rights violation. China has made rigorous representations to the United States and Canada, demanding that they immediately correct their wrong practices and restore Ms. Meng's personal freedom. We will closely follow developments and take all actions to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese citizens.
As the world's largest supplier of telecommunications infrastructure equipment, Huawei has been at the forefront of China-US trade confrontation. Many analysts believe that the arrest of Meng's late boat is closely related to the blockade of China by the United States to 5G.
Evening boat arrest, intending to 5G?
Just before Meng's arrest, many domestic media were still heading "Huawei Breaking through the Blockade" and "US Blockade Failure", reporting that Huawei had signed 22 5G commercial contracts around the world, including 640 billion 5G orders from Germany, 6 orders totaling 270 billion yuan from the Middle East and 5G infrastructure construction in India.
Meanwhile, a planned blockade around Hua5G is under way.
As early as in 2009, Huawei invested 600 million US dollars to develop 5G technology, and in 2017, the research and development cost was as high as 90 billion US dollars. After nearly 10 years of development, Huawei has gained the voice of 5G standard to a certain extent. At present, one third of the network equipment used by global operators comes from Huawei. Huawei has also become the focus of attention in the United States due to its strong investment in 5G, a key technology in the future.
The bad news is that the "Huawei Threat Theory" put forward by the United States seems to be working. Many countries have begun to consider removing Huawei from 5G for fear of the security of some 5G operators.
Previously, Huawei was Australia's largest supplier of telecommunications equipment, and this year, the Australian Government's Ministry of Communications and Arts officially proposed 5G security guidelines, which explicitly required that the country's telecommunications operators not use Huawei and ZTE's equipment and technology.
After Australia, Germany, which had signed an order with Huawei, began to think about Huawei. It is reported that Germany will auction 5G spectrum in the first quarter of next year. Senior German officials are planning to take final measures to persuade the government to consider excluding Chinese enterprises such as Huawei from building 5G infrastructure in the country.
As the next stage of communication technology, automatic driving and smart factories related to the Intelligent Network Link are inseparable from the 5G network. It can be said that 5G will be the same existence as the nervous system of every country in the next stage, and its strategic position needs no further elaboration. According to the current situation, the future 5G world is likely to divide the blockade of Huawei into two parts: the United States and its alliance, and the countries that adopt Huawei.
And how much territory Huawei can gain in the future 5G world is directly related to the follow-up treatment of the Meng Late Boat Incident.
In response to the arrest of Huawei CFO and Ren Zhengfei's eldest daughter in the early morning of "brushing screen", Chen Qi, professor of international relations and director of the Center for Sino-US Relations at Tsinghua University's School of Social Sciences, said that the time and background of Huawei's CFO arrest were unclear at present. "There is news." He said that he was arrested before December 1, and some people said that it was the last two days'incident. This time point is very important.
He said there were no documents to prove Huawei's export of prohibited products to Iran.
"Although many details of the incident are not clear, the general environment is very clear." He analyzed that the 5G products exported by Huawei had attracted opposition and warning from the administrative departments of some countries and regions such as the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. In addition, the contradiction between China and the United States in the technological war, the United States had the intention to snipe at China's high-tech products.
He added that the specific relationship between Meng's arrest and the general environment still needs more details to be released, but it is easy to associate that by arresting Ren Zhengfei's daughter, Huawei is in trouble to promote 5G products overseas.
