China accuses US of hypocrisy over Huawei spying, FT says

China’s government has rebuked the US for spying on Shenzhen-based Huawei Technologies, saying that reports of cyber espionage by the National Security Agency “lay bare the United States’s hypocrisy and despotic rule”, the Financial Times reported Thursday. Defense ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng said Thursday that China plans to take urgent steps to increase its cyber security to prevent such hacking attacks taking place, according to the report. It follows reports in The New York Times and Der Spiegel that the NSA snooped on Huawei’s servers to find weak points that could be exploited for hacking attacks on the company’s clients, it said.
