Yesterday Huawei filed a legal motion seeking to declare a US defense law unconstitutional in the fight against sanctions that the US government has put on the company, and on the same day the company has signaled that it can cooperate to address over national security concerns.
On May 29, Andy Purdy, Chief security officer at Huawei Technologies USA told CNBC that the Chinese telecom giant might be open to taking steps to address the US national security concerns.
“In different countries in the world, we negotiate with respective governments on what kind of assurance framework they need,” told Andy.
He said some measures might include requirements around selling to the government or to critical infrastructure projects. While saying he cannot prejudge any possible conditions, Purdy said he would be “astounded if we weren’t open to those kinds of risk mitigation measures. ”
