"The current practice of US politicians underestimates our strength", Ren said in an interview with Chinese state-run broadcaster CCTV, adding that his company has a stockpile of chips and "can't be isolated" from the world, according to AFP.
Commenting on the US Commerce Department's recent decision to temporary ease trade restrictions, Ren noted that the Chinese-based tech giant has made preparations.
Huawei has recently faced allegations that the company is linked to the Chinese government and has spied on its behalf. Although both Huawei and the Chinese government refuted these claims, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the United States banned Huawei from participating in government contracts for 2018.
The Commerce Department announced Monday, however, that the US government would delay the implementation of a ban on trading with the Chinese telecom giant for another 90 days. By issuing temporary licenses with the new rule, Huawei will be able to maintain existing networks and update software on handsets, according to the US Commerce Department.
