The founder of Huawei is firmly opposed to sanctions against Apple from Beijing

The founder of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, does not seem to really hold a grudge. Ten days after that the United States has severely sanctioned the chinese company with a decree preventing the telecom giant of collaborating with u.s. firms – and because of this, Google, Qualcomm, Microsoft and even Intel – the retaliation of China are slow in coming, and they could logically fall on Apple, if the escalation initiated by Donald Trump continues.

However, Ren Zhengfei does not want Beijing to take to the american manufacturer, he says in an interview with Bloomberg. ” First, this will not happen and then, if that happens, I’ll be the first to oppose it. (…) Apple is my teacher, he is in the lead. As a student, why I will start my teacher ? Ever “, says the founder of Huawei.

But this interview is also the opportunity to Ren Zhengfei to express his feelings on the current situation of his company. He even compares it to a plane with a hole in the flan, which continues to fly, and that corrections would gradually take place in order to enable him to regain the height.

The founder of Huawei, has said that the measures taken by the u.s. government against his company have reduced by two years the technological advance of the chinese company over its competitors. Blow to Huawei, whose founder remains optimistic, stating that this predicament could be the opportunity to further improve, in particular by seeking out new partners to develop its chips, and by participating in the democratization of the 5G.
