Chinese Huawei withdraws medical assistance to Europe after PR allegations


Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei has decided to curtail its European donation program to fight COVID-19 for fear of being drawn into political a game of local authorities. This happened after the head of the European Union’s Foreign Ministry, Spaniard Josep Borrell, said that the Chinese company had set up a "PR during the plague." It is reported by EURACTIV - an independent pan-European media network specializing in EU politics.


It is noted that over the past two weeks, the company donated millions of masks and test systems for use in the fight against COVID-19 in the EU countries, including Italy, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Poland, Holland and Spain. At the same time, Huawei has already stated that it “remains open” for “urgently needed” additional equipment of European health authorities.

Huawei is not the only Chinese company to provide assistance. Donations were made by Alibaba, as well as competitors of Huawei, producing various electronics. These donations allegedly prompted the said EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy to make such a harsh statement.

After the EU donated medical equipment to China earlier this year, China has reduced the incidence to single cases and now it is sending equipment and doctors to Europe

Borrel wrote on his blog.

China aggressively promotes the idea that, unlike the United States, it is a responsible and reliable partner. In this we see attempts to discredit the EU

- explained Borrel.

In the end, a Huawei spokesman told EURACTIV that, following Borrel’s comments, the company would end its donation program, not wanting to participate in a geopolitical game.

This is not the issue we want to associate with.

- said a representative of the Chinese company, emphasizing that Huawei is not related to what Borrel said.

For us, this was not a public relations campaign. But now we are putting an end to our EU medical donation program

- added a representative of Huawei.

    Bravo, China !!! That's right! It does not reach through the head - it will reach through the ass !!! Now let the whole of Europe say "THANK YOU so much" to Joseph Borrell! Who was he there ??? - Foreign Secretary??? Soon it will not be ... They will be removed from their posts and punished with a ruble!
    This is the only way to talk with the West !!! And then their tongue dangles in the detachment from the head! It’s not only not enough to dismiss him - he must be put on a caracal!
    It is also necessary for Russia to “take offense” and withdraw its specialists from Italy ... Otherwise, their free press can write everything that comes to the head, but what about us? You can’t be offended in response !? Let the floors be washed by that clever and FREE journalist who wrote disgusting things in an Italian newspaper - maybe they can cover the newspaper ... RUBLE should be punished !!! Ruble! - They don’t understand otherwise there!

      Huawei is a private company, it may be offended. Russia is a state, this is another area of ​​activity.

        This is such a "private" company that in response to the detention of its head in Canada, China was ready to break up .... Canada ... Or do you doubt that the head of this private company is not a member of the CCP ??? Or maybe you doubt that the CPC Central Committee can approximately punish its member?

        Although in fact you’re right ... But here Putin is still of great importance! I am struck by his patience with regard to Ukraine, for example! Putin will NEVER allow himself what the Chinese company allowed !!! That's why he is Putin ... If not Politeness, then CONDITION is for sure the privilege of kings.

      You are right, if you give without a request, no one will appreciate it, they won’t even say “thank you”. By the way, giving so, one should not expect gratitude.

        Did not try to write in YOUR name, and not from the "broad masses"? This is about "nobody" - well, if you, and not only that, are NOT given - I can sympathize, there is nothing to help, and there is no special desire to help such people ... hi

              Your mistake in using "nobody"

              This is not a mistake, this is psychology, so it works, read books on psychology, popular, of course.

          It's about nobody

          This is psychology, here I am powerless. This is how a person works. He appreciates only what has been achieved, but what he has received for nothing is not.

            People are arranged in different ways, and I personally had occasion to meet such people, not one or two who were grateful and quite a long time, moreover, I’m NOT talking about me ...

              People are arranged differently

              People are different, yes, but they can be controlled and understood, knowing human psychology.

      “Ask and it will be given” - is written in the Bible

      The Bible is very spelled. First there must be a request, and only then it will be given. Cause and investigation...

    I hope they do not stop there and not only curse those who accepted help from Russia and China, but they will also expel them from the EU and NATO with shame. Small but proud Lithuania handed over the masks received from the communists to Ukraine. That, despite the decommunization, they were accepted. True, in Lithuania itself, dozens of NATO soldiers became infected with the coronavirus.
