US slammed for cold war mentality

Written by Nick Farrell



McCarthy alive and well in Washington


China's commerce minister has hit out at the US's Cold War mentality in conducting McCarthy type persecutions of Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei.

The U.S. House of Representatives' Intelligence Committee warned  that Beijing could use equipment made by Huawei and ZTE for spying. The report cited the presence of a Communist Party cell in the companies' management structure as part of the reason for concern.

Chen pointed out that if China assumed that US companies were spying on it because of their relationship with the Democratic or Republican parties, it would be a mess. If Americans turned around their own logic they would realise that it is in no one's interest to spy on each other.

All Chinese state-owned enterprises and a growing number of private Chinese firms have a Communist Party secretary at the top of their management structure. In most cases, the top management are themselves party members.
