FBI chief says agency 'deeply concerned' about any company like China's ZTE

Reuters  |  WASHINGTON 

(Reuters) - FBI told a panel on Wednesday that the law enforcement agency is "deeply concerned" about any company like China's gaining positions of power in the U.S.

Wray also said he was not aware if made any attempt to consult with the FBI for its views before he recently sent a note on promising to help restore jobs after U.S. sanctions prompted it to suspend its main operations.

"We the FBI remain deeply concerned that any company beholden to foreign governments that don't share our values are not companies that we want to be gaining positions of power inside our telecommunications network," Wray told the panel. "That gives them the capacity to maliciously modify or steal information, that gives them the capacity to conduct undetected espionage."
