Huawei Willing To Sign “No Spy” Agreements With Governments To Keep Selling Gear To Them

Yahoo! Finance is reporting that Huawei who has been linked with Chinese spying is now willing to sign “no spy” agreements that would allow them to keep selling their gear into countries like the US, UK, Canada and others who have concerns about their potential spying activities:

“We are willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments, including the UK government, to commit ourselves to making our equipment meet the no-spy, no-backdoors standard,” Huawei chairman Liang Hua told reporters in London via an interpreter.

“Despite the fact Huawei has its headquarters in China, we are actually a globally operating company,” he said. “Where we are operating globally we are committed to be compliant with the locally applicable laws and regulations in that country.

Let’s think about this for a second. The fact that Huawei is willing to sign an agreement saying that they won’t spy on anyone…. Which to be frank shouldn’t even be a thought shows how much these spying claims have hurt the company. Having said that, while I am prepared to be proven wrong, I can’t see any nation that has concerns with Huawei taking them up on this offer.
