The Chinese government is voicing its support for the most controversial company in the world.

The cases against Chinese telecom giant Huawei and its CFO Meng Wanzhou are politically motivated and Chinese companies should stop being the “silent lambs”, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi told a press conference on Friday.

“It’s quite obvious to any fair and unbiased person that recent actions against a particular Chinese company and individual is by no means a pure judicial case, but a deliberate political move to bring them down,” Wang said. “We support the company and the individual in question in seeking legal redress to protect their interests and refusing to be victimised like ‘silent lambs’.”

Huawei has recently filed lawsuits against both US and Canadian governments, after diplomatic efforts failed to resolve the differences. The Chinese foreign minister’s comment signals high-level approval for the change of strategy.
