Pompeo: China's Communist Party runs Huawei

The Communist Party of China (CPC) "runs the joint," United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday, responding to a question on the connection between the China and technology giant Huawei.

Asked if the US has proof that Huawei is connected to party surveillance, Pompeo said that there are some things he cannot share in an open setting. However, he claimed that members of the Chinese security apparatus work at Huawei headquarters. Pompeo also stressed that China's security services don't need secret access to Huawei's infrastructure since the company has a "legal obligation" to hand over any data on its users to the state.

Huawei has strongly denied that it is influenced by the CPC as the US labeled its networks as a threat to national security.
