"The United States can not crush the company," Huawei, the founder of the Chinese telecom giant Huawei, told the BBC in an interview.

Ren Zheng said the arrest of his daughter Meng Wanzo, Huawei's executive director, was politically motivated.

The United States has filed criminal charges for the company, including money laundering, bank fraud and obstruction of justice, and Huawei denies any wrongdoing.

Ren Zheng rejected the pressure exerted by the United States.

"The United States can not crush us," he said. "The world can not leave us because we are more sophisticated."

"Even if they convince more countries to stop dealing with us, we can always lower prices somewhat."

However, Ren Zheng acknowledged that this loss may have a significant impact on the company.

"If they convince more countries not to deal with us temporarily, we can always reduce the size of the company," he said.

Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his country's allies against using Huawei equipment on their land, saying it would make it difficult for Washington to "take partners".

The United States, Australia and New Zealand are barring local companies from using Huawei to provide fifth-generation mobile network technology, while Canada is considering whether Huawei's products pose a security threat.

Ren Zheng warned that the world "can not leave the company's products because it is more sophisticated."

"If the lights go out in the West, the East will continue to be lit. If darkness prevails in the north, the South remains, America does not represent the world, it is part of the world."

How did Huawei start?

The company began to manufacture devices related to mobile networks, and achieved rapid growth in this area to surpass the Nokia and Ericsson, making it one of the world's leading companies.

Recently, Huawei has entered the smart phone industry, accounting for 15 percent of the global market, ranking second behind Samsung and outperforming Apple.

Huawei's founder was an officer of the People's Liberation Army (PLA).

Founded in 1987, the company has 180,000 employees.
