"We look forward to the court's verdict".

This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming USA consumers.

Huawei says the new law would make it illegal for anyone working for the USA government to buy the company's products.

US authorities "have hacked our servers and stolen our emails" but have presented no evidence to support their security claims, Guo said. -Chinese tensions over technology competition and cyberspying. "We are compelled to take this legal action as a proper and last resort", Huawei Rotating Chairman Guo Ping said in a statement.

Mr Petty said the United Kingdom was a leader in 5G readiness and would fall behind if Huawei was banned.

Ltd. on March 7 confirmed it is suing the us government over a section of a defense bill passed into law past year that restricts its access to the United States.

Huawei is claiming the ban is unlawful, adding, the US has failed to provide evidence that laws were broken. That threatens to block access to major markets as phone carriers prepare to invest billions of dollars in next-generation cellular networks, known as 5G.

Huawei said the new law would shrink its potential US market further by prohibiting the government from buying the Chinese vendor's technology and from buying goods or services from or giving grants or loans to companies or other third parties that do.

The United States has asked allies not to use Huawei's technology because it could be a vehicle for Chinese spy operations, an accusation denied by the company.

The Australian FinancialReview thought it was no coincidence that Huawei live-streamed a major press conference to roll out its lawsuit against the US government at the same time the United States seeks to extradite Huawei Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou from Canada to face charges of violating Iran sanctions. In its lawsuit filed Thursday local time, the company said the ban is unconstitutional because it violates its right to due process, which is enshrined by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.

Huawei's chief legal officer Song Liuping described the lawsuit as a "purposeful and punitive" attack on Huawei, accusing Senator Marco Rubio of smearing the company as a "Trojan horse".

He then began a prolific lobbying career for pro-Kremlin politicians in Ukraine, especially former president Viktor Yanukovych. Prosecutors said he was cash-poor when he lied to banks to obtain loans, even as he worked at no salary for Trump's campaign.

Huawei's top competitors are Sweden's Ericsson and Finland's Nokia Corp. He also said it would delay the release of 5G communications.

A spokesman for Huawei, the world's largest telecommunications equipment maker, has denied the charges in the sanctions case, and did not provide further comment to Reuters.

"This ban not only is unlawful, but also restricts Huawei from engaging in fair competition, ultimately harming US consumers".

Turner said Huawei will likely keep fighting, but "to keep it going, is the legal equivalent of scaling Mount Everest without a rope". US prosecutors have filed charges accusing Meng, who's the daughter of Huawei's founder, of lying to banks about dealings with Iran.

The executive, who is the daughter of the company's founder, was arrested December 1 by Canadian authorities and is fighting a USA extradition request.

So, for Meng, too, the most likely positive outcome would be for a relatively lenient plea deal, given that under federal law, the charges she faces in Brooklyn carry as much as 30 years in prison. That followed the Canadian government's announcement Friday that the extradition proceeding would be allowed to continue.
