A top manager from Huawei has promised to do what it takes to restore the reputation of the Chinese company, because it fights against claims of espionage.

Vincent Peng, the company's president for Western Europe, has made the promise after democracies around the world have moved their equipment from new mobile networks.

Huawei has insisted that its equipment can not be used for espionage. And, amid a review of the rules that could curb the company's operations in the UK, Peng tried to appease concerns.

He said: "All that is needed to do this transformation is our goal to do this.

We try everything, do our very best, try to prove that we are a good company. & # 39;

Peng's comments came when a dispute about the arrest of Huawei's head of finance in Canada escalated, with China holding two Canadian men in an apparent retaliatory act.

The movement put pressure on Canada after the country took action against Huawei's financial director Meng Wanzhou.

But Peng's reassurances were questioned by security experts. Ollie Whitehouse, the technology chief of the largest UK cyber security company NCC Group, told Mail: "The UK has been very careful to ban Huawei equipment from the core of the telecoms network.

& # 39; China is an aggressive state. So do you allow them to deliver the core technology to the communication systems of your country? & # 39;

& # 39; As a risk professional, if there is someone I know who has been aggressive to me and wants to steal information from me as a state, it would be wise to manage where that equipment comes from. & # 39;
