Zhang lives a life of simplicity, purity and indifference to

 fame and fortune, serving as a role model for military officers, rank-and-file soldiers and veterans across the country, Xi said.

Zhang, a member of the CPC, was a soldier of Brigade 359 of the Northwest Field Army, o

ne of the main forces of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army during the Liberation War between 1945 and 1949.

He was honored by the Northwest Field Army several times for performing meritorious deeds as he braved enemy fire. He

was twice given the honorary title of Combat Hero. When he retired from the PLA, Zhang chose to work in the pov

erty-stricken mountainous areas in Laifeng, a remote county in Hubei province. He dedicated his life to the peo

ple, holding posts ranging from community-level government official to deputy manager of a local bank.

“Recently, some US politicians have repeatedly made rumors about Huawei but canno

t provide any evidence that other countries have requested,” Lu told a daily news conference.

He noted that the US public is having more and more doubts over the market turbulen

ce and undermined industrial cooperation caused by the trade war and technology war initiated by the US.

“So some US politicians have continually created rumors, tr

Ideological differences do not necessarily impede tra

The otherwise low-profile Huawei leader made no secret about his pride

in his company’s technologies: “Huawei’s 5G will absolutely not be affected. When it c

omes to 5G technologies, others will definitely not catch up in two or three years”.

That was why the confident Ren said the 90-day exemption Washington declared on Monday was dispensable.

He called on the US to stop its wrongful behavior and make more efforts to create conditions for normal international trade cooperation.

Huawei has been increasing its 5G commercial contracts worldwide, with more countries giving the com

pany a vote of confidence. But it is facing security allegations from the US, which Huawei has said are unfounded.
