It was among a series of stories attacking the U.S. stance in their trade standoff.

Washington has targeted Huawei, the top world supplier of telecom gear and No. 2 smartphone maker, as a security threat in a broader conflict over trade and technology.

Pointedly, the clip ran by CCTV highlighted Huawei’s lead in the technology. It did not include parts of the segment featuring concerns over China’s potential ability to spy using Huawei-equipped 5G networks.
