China accuses UK of 'deep-rooted pride and prejudice' after Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson raised deep concerns over Huawei’s involvement in 5G network

China has accused the UK of 'deep-rooted pride and prejudice' in response to concern about technology firm Huawei's role in upgrading the UK's mobile network.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson recently said he had 'very deep concerns' about the Chinese company's involvement in the UK's roll-out of 5G.

But Chinese Ministry of National Defence spokesperson Wu Qian called allegations against the company 'groundless', according to Global Times, a Communist Party-run newspaper.

Huawei's chairman has also spoken out about the company's 'incredibly unfair treatment' in a new year's message.

'We must not be discouraged by malicious incidents or temporary setbacks, and must remain determined to achieve global leadership,' Guo Ping said.
