Huawei Calls on U.S. to Investigate Accusations

In a highly unusual move, Huawei Technologies, one of the most successful companies in China, has asked the U.S. government to investigate its background formally in the hopes of clearing the company's path to expand and make deals in United States.

In an open letter released Friday, Huawei complained that its push into the United States had been undermined by false allegations and mistaken suspicions that the company had close ties with the Chinese government and the military and that the privately owned company did not respect intellectual property rights.

Huawei, the world's second-largest maker of telecommunications equipment, after Ericsson of Sweden, said it was frustrated by its inability to make deals in the United States and was determined to work with the U.S. government to help clear up what it said were misperceptions about its history and business operations.
