For China, Huawei is a source of national pride: it’s written into the company’s name.
However, for the U-S and many western nations, the tech giant is a spying tool for the Chinese government.
The U-S says Huawei poses a security threat, and is pressuring allies in Europe and Asia to ban its products.
But Huawei is fighting back.
It’s suing the U-S government for not allowing its workers to use Huawei eqiupment.
And in Canada, the company is fighting the extradition of one of its top executives accused of flouting U-S sanctions on Iran.
So what’s really behind the controversy surrounding Huawei?
