For example, since Huawei's equipment is not used in the USA networks, is the US having the most secure network?

"Enhancing our software engineering capabilities is like replacing components on a high-speed train in motion", he said in a letter to the chairman of the British parliament's science and technology committee.

Vodafone, which has "paused" deployment of Huawei equipment in its core networks until Western governments give the Chinese firm full security clearance, has Huawei as one of its technology partners in 5G testing in Milan.

Huawei has suggested that European Union supervisors oversee the company's cybersecurity practices in order to help convince the western world that it is not helping the Chinese government spy on other countries.

Huawei has since committed to spending $2 billion in a drive to fix those problems, but in a letter to lawmakers last week, Ryan Ding, president of the company's carrier business group, said it would take up to five years to see results.

Huawei has repeatedly denied US-led allegations that its equipment could be used by Beijing for spying.

Elsewhere in his letter to committee chair Norman Lamb, the Huawei representative responded to technical security concerns raised in the recent annual report from the oversight board of the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre - which was set up by government in 2010 to keep tabs on the company's government work and mitigate "the perceived risks" to the United Kingdom therein.

It states that Chinese organisations are obliged to "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in, national intelligence work".

Ellington is in his 10th National Basketball Association season and has averaged 8.4 points in 25 games with the Heat this season. Next season, Johnson's expiring contract can be utilized if the Suns chase after any trades where large salaries are swapped.

He also reiterated that the company's products have never harmed national security of any country in the world.

It is likely that Trump may sign an order banning use of Chinese telecom equipment in US networks citing security issues.

Huawei, the global networks market leader with annual sales exceeding $100 billion, faces worldwide scrutiny over its ties to the Chinese regime and suspicion Beijing could use its technology for spying.

No EU-wide law has been introduced on the matter to date, and any restrictions on 5G contracts for national security reasons remain a decision for individual nations.

"For example, yesterday, the US ambassador to the European Union, Mr. (Gordon) Sondland, says someone in Beijing can remotely run a certain vehicle off the road on 5G network and kill the person that's in it".

Five Eyes is an intelligence alliance comprising the Anglophone countries of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the United States.

The executive also said that Huawei would open a "cyber security centre" in Brussels next month that will show that the company is "part of the solution, not part of the problem".

The company's CFO is in Canada, in custody, awaiting extradition to the USA on charges of fraud.
