According to Huawei chairman Liang Hua (via Reuters), the company is willing to sign “no-spy” agreements with governments, including the United Kingdom. The pacts would ensure Huawei is legally responsible to prevent backdoor spying on other nations using Huawei equipment.

“We are willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments, including the U.K. government, to commit ourselves to making our equipment meet the no-spy, no-backdoors standard,” Hua told reporters in London via an interpreter.

The statement is in response to pressures from the United States on European countries to avoid using Huawei telecommunications gear over fears of the company using that equipment to spy on other nations and report findings to the Chinese government.
