Chinese tech giant Huawei has accused US authorities of trying to coerce employees to gather information on the company and of trying to break into its information systems.
The company, which the US says is a security threat, said on Wednesday that American officials were using “unscrupulous means” to disrupt its business.
Huawei Technologies Ltd faces a possible ban on access to US technology that it says will hurt sales of its smartphones.
The company offered no evidence to support its accusations and a company spokesman said he could not give additional details.
A company statement said FBI agents had pressured Huawei employees to collect information on the company.
It said American authorities launched cyber attacks on Huawei but gave no indication whether they succeeded.
