Huawei founder would be ‘first to protest’ if China banned Apple

Today, Huawei's founder, Ren Zhengfei, granted another interview where he responded to the rumors that China will take actions against Apple.

"If you review China's remarks in the same period, you will find that our position has always been the same", Lu said, adding that China has always upheld the position that any difference between two countries, including China-U.S. trade disagreements, should be resolved through friendly consultation and negotiation. "First of all, this will not happen". Apple is my teacher [and] it is advancing in front of us. As a student, why go against my teacher? Huawei has made it clear that their preference would be for a settlement of trade hostilities between U.S. and China which will likely also resolve their own issues with the United States government.

Huawei was dealt a blow last week with Google's decision to partially cut off Huawei devices from its Android OS following a USA order banning the sale or transfer of American technology to the firm. Microsoft's services team for Huawei has reportedly moved out of its Shenzhen-based headquarters.

The restrictions on US companies providing hardware, software and components to Huawei's smartphone business "could stir up the smartphone industry by pausing Huawei's positive momentum", the Fitch statement said.

"That depends on how fast our repairmen are able to fix the plane", Ren said. Beijing has imposed retaliatory tariffs. When Trump recently indicated that Huawei might be involved in a new trade agreement between the two world powers, Zhengfei got it wrong.

Earlier this month, Trump increased tariffs to 25 percent from 10 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports after accusing the Chinese regime of reneging on key commitments negotiated over months of trade talks. He also had harsh words for Trump.
