Chinese Telecom Firm Tied To Communist Chinese Spy Ministry

Bill Gertz, the Washington Times' outstanding national security reporter, wrote an interesting piece about Huawei, a Chinese company that has been tied to the Communist Chinese Government's spy ministry.

A U.S. intelligence report for the first time links China’s largest telecommunications company to Beijing’s KGB-like intelligence service and says the company recently received nearly a quarter-billion dollars from the Chinese government.

The disclosures are a setback for Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.’s efforts to break into the U.S. telecommunications market. The company has been blocked from doing so three times by the U.S. government because of concerns about its links to the Chinese government.

The report by the CIA-based Open Source Center states that Huawei’s chairwoman, Sun Yafang, worked for the Ministry of State Security (MSS) Communications Department before joining the company.
