China slammed widely in US media on security, human rights

Ellen Messmer | Oct. 28, 2011
China was slammed on several fronts in a barrage of articles published today in the U.S. media that touched on security concerns related to the U.S. and Iran, plus a crackdown on Internet usage said to be unfolding within China.

Iran is said to be beefing up surveillance of its citizens since antigovernment uprisings following the disputed elections of two years ago. A Huawei spokesman is quoted as saying Huawei is just supplying "commercial public use products and services."

The company refuted the assertion in the WSJ article from an unnamed source that says Huawei in 2009 "carried out government orders on behalf of its client, MTN Irancell, that MTN and other carriers had received to suspend text messaging and block the Internet phone service, Skype, which is popular among dissidents."
