China’s top telecommunications gear makers should be shut out of the U.S. market because potential Chinese state influence on them poses a security threat, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Intelligence Committee said in a draft of a report to be released on October 8, 2012. U.S. intelligence must stay focused on efforts by Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and ZTE Corp to expand in the United States and tell the private sector as much as possible about the purported espionage threat, the panel leaders said, based on their 11-month investigation of the pair. Huawei spokesman William Plummer rejected the committee’s allegations in a statement emailed to Reuters. For its part, ZTE released a copy of the letter it sent to the committee, stating it “profoundly disagrees” with the claim that it is directed or controlled by the Chinese government.
