China accuses US of 'double standard' over Huawei claims

China says the U.S. is using a double standard in claiming Chinese law requires equipment maker Huawei

BEIJING -- China says the U.S. is using a double standard in claiming Chinese law requires telecoms giant Huawei to violate other countries' information security.

He said the 2017 law borrows from other countries' experiences and is designed explicitly to "protect human rights and the lawful rights of individuals and organizations."

The U.S. has been lobbying its allies to shun Huawei's products on national security grounds.
