China is seriously concerned about the spying allegations, Hong Lei, the spokesman, said at a regular briefing.

Huawei Technologies condemned the alleged infiltration, which was reported by The New York Times and the German magazine Der Spiegel over the weekend.

The reports were based on information provided by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor who has, since last June, been revealing the agency's massive global surveillance programs, including claims it created "back doors" into networks maintained by Huawei.

Charles Ding, president of Huawei North America, said Huawei condemns initiatives to penetrate corporate networks, to monitor corporate emails and to steal proprietary information about its products in order to exploit those products in other networks.

"Like any other telecom company, Huawei is opposed to any action that threatens cybersecurity. We urge governments, industry and customers of all nations to work together to tackle the global challenge of cybersecurity," Ding said.

He said Huawei has maintained an excellent record in cybersecurity. "Like other companies, Huawei has persisted in thwarting outside attacks on our internal networks. We are further improving and strengthening our infrastructure," Ding said.
