The US is pursuing criminal charges against Huawei and Ms Meng, including money laundering, bank fraudand stealing trade secrets, though the company has denied any wronhdoing.
Mr Ren spoke to the BBC’s Karishma Vaswani in his first international broadcast interview since Ms Meng was arrested – and dismissed the pressure from the US. “There’s no way the US can crush us,” he said. “The world cannot leave us because we are more advanced. Even if they persuade more countries not to use us temporarily, we can always scale things down a bit.”
After threats of their products been benned in the U.S Mr zen responded by saying “the world cannot leave us because we are more advanced”, “If the lights go out in the West, the East will still shine. And if the North goes dark, there is still the South. America doesn’t represent the world.
America only represents a portion of the world.” Mr Ren’s daughter Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, was arrested on 1 December in Vancouver at the request of the US, and is expected to be the subject of a formal extradition request( now that just sad).
