China backs Huawei's legal counteroffensive, top diplomat says

Wang Yi says company cannot be 'silent lamb' in the face of US pressure

BEIJING -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, while insisting that assertiveness is not a Chinese characteristic, said on Friday that Beijing would stand by Huawei Technologies and diplomats taking stands overseas.

Referring to recent U.S. actions against the telecommunications equipment maker and Meng Wanzhou, its chief financial officer, as a "deliberate political move to bring them down," Wang said with a raised fist, "We support the company and individual in question in seeking legal redress to protect their own interests and refusing to be victimized like silent lambs."
