China rejects ‘groundless’ US warnings over Huawei as it seeks to ease Europe’s concerns

China dismissed US security warnings about Huawei as groundless and “abnormal” on Monday, as Beijing’s top diplomat went to Brussels in an effort to cool growing European frustration over trade.In a veiled reference to the Chinese tech giant, which the United States has warned could be used to spy on the West, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Washington to stop its attempts to “bring down” the company. “What we oppose are groundless accusations for political purposes and attempts to bring down a foreign company,” Wang said, although he did not name Huawei, which is seeking to sell the next generation of mobile technology in Europe, its top market outside China.
