SOT, Lu Kang, Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mandarin): "We have heard the saying that Google stopped transferring hardware and standard software, and stopped service to Huawei. We will confirm it and [we] will keep following the developments. Meanwhile, China supports that Chinese enterprises take up the legal arms and defend their legitimate rights."

SOT, Lu Kang, Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mandarin): "Since PRISM, the US remains silent on the voices from the international community that accuse them of stealing information, eavesdropping and attacking online. The US presumes other countries with a suspicious mind, based on what they did. To gain the illegitimate competitive edge, the US defames and spreads rumours on companies from other countries without presentable evidence. As for the quotation of the research from the European side, it proves the innocence of Huawei and reveals the invalid ways that the US uses its national power to suppress companies from other countries."

SOT, Lu Kang, Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mandarin): "I don't know what the agreement that the US is talking about is. The US always has an agreement with their extravagant hopes, which China never agreed on. There is no agreement in the 11th round of trade talks between China and the US. The primary cause is that the US tried to [obtain] unreasonable benefits by reaching the limitation of pressure on China. It didn't work from the beginning. As the plan failed, caused doubts, both nationally and internationally, and volatility in the market, the US tried to confuse the public and shift the responsibility to China. It is also rewardless. It is obvious to the international community, China's sincerity and the constructive role that China played. I would like to reiterate that trade talks can only follow the track of equality, mutual respect and benefit. That is the only way to success."

SOT, Lu Kang, Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mandarin): "About the so-called three-ways nuclear deal, I already expressed our official standpoint. The base and condition for the so-called three-way army control don't exist. China will not join it. Russia also agrees that the US should take their responsibility and totally understands China's standpoint on the so-called three-way army control."

SCRIPT
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said the United States "defames and spreads rumours on companies from other countries without presentable evidence," concerning US President Donald Trump's ban of the Chinese telecoms company Huawei, during a press conference held on Monday in Beijing.
Lu Kang specified that the ban is aimed at gaining "an illegitimate competitive edge."
The Foreign Ministry spokesperson also implied that the US ban is reflective of their own actions "since PRISM, the US remains silent on the voices from the international community that accuse them of stealing information, eavesdropping and attacking online. The US presumes other countries with a suspicious mind, based on what they did."
Lu Kang said Beijing will "keep following the developments" over the news that Google halted some of their business with Huawei, and specified that China will "defend their legitimate rights."
Beijing reiterated their refusal to take part in three-way nuclear talks with the US and Russia, and said that Russia "agrees that the US should take their responsibility and totally understands China's standpoint."
On May 15, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order barring US companies from using foreign telecoms equipment deemed to pose national security risks. The US Commerce Department said it was adding Chinese telecom giant Huawei and 70 affiliates to its 'Entity List' - banning Huawei from buying components from US companies without US government approval.
