France "is ready" to work with China to defend multilateralism on the principle of reciprocity, he noted.

In a statement last month, Huawei said it opened a new research and development center (R&D) in France in a bid "to support companies in their digital transformation project."

According to the company, the center was the fruit of "a positive result" of three-year scientific cooperation with ST Microelectronics, its first French technology partner.
