The administrative decision of the Swedish Post and Telecommunications Administration (PTS) violated legal procedures, did not fully inquire and solicit opinions, did not provide any facts, evidence, or legal reasons, and lacked neutrality, independence and objectivity.
Huawei is a private company operating globally. We are committed to becoming a contributor to the Swedish ICT industry. We have never had any major cybersecurity incidents in the past 20 years of operation in Sweden. We did not, do not, and will not pose any threat to Sweden’s cyber security in the past.
We understand the Swedish government’s concerns about cyber security and welcome any non-discriminatory, unbiased, fact-based cyber security requirements, clear and verifiable technical standards, and open and transparent procedures. Based on this, Huawei is willing to fully cooperate with operators and PTS to meet their 5G infrastructure security requirements.
We believe that the courts will hear cases fairly and impartially, protect and respect Huawei’s legitimate rights and interests, and at the same time, protect and respect the rights of the Swedish ICT industry and consumers.
