The FedEx Corp. should offer a proper explanation on Chinese telecom giant Huawei and it should take responsibilities for its own actions, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told reporters at a daily news briefing on Monday.
The remarks came after an American computer magazine said FedEx refused to ship a Huawei Technologies phone from Britain to the United States.
The spokesperson noted that this is not the first time that FedEx made mistakes regarding Huawei, saying the U.S. government abuses the concept of national security and suppresses a Chinese company using its state machines and that is the root of the problem.
“We urge the U.S. government to immediately stop and correct its wrongdoings and create the necessary conditions for the normal operation and cooperation between enterprises from different countries,” added Geng.
Earlier, Huawei claimed that FedEx diverted two parcels destined for Huawei addresses in Asia to the U.S. and attempted to reroute two others, all without authorization. China has launched an investigation into the company in accordance with legal procedures.
