NEW YORK/ TAIPEI -- Huawei launched a second lawsuit against a U.S. government agency on Thursday as China's largest telecoms company stepped up its international legal and public relations offensive that seeks to convince the world that it does not represent a security threat.

The latest measure by Huawei seeks to overturn a decision last week by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission that labeled the company a "national security threat" and curtails the subsidized sale of Huawei products to rural U.S. customers.
