"This monitoring behavior of the United States is within expectations," Zhengfei told reporters. "It has just been proved. The business we are doing with our customers is built on a mutual understanding between our customers and ourselves over the last two to three decades. Therefore, those things going on will not, I believe, have any impact on doing business with us."

Considering the U.S. government's suspicions that Huawei is under heavy Chinese government influence, companies such as Nokia Siemens, Alcatel-Lucent, and Ericsson have found success. However, Huawei has over 140,000 employees, and more than 20 research and development firms worldwide - making it a valuable asset for many telecommunication companies.
