Beijing responded Wednesday to a Taiwan research institute’s decision to prohibit staff from connecting Huawei devices to internal networks for safety reasons.

“We are strongly against this decision, which jeopardizes the mainland and Taiwan’s regular economic cooperation for political purposes,” Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, said during a regular press conference this morning.

“This will not only harm the interest of mainland-based enterprises, but will also harm Taiwan consumers. The decision, which pleases some foreign powers and serves as a puppet for outsiders, will not win people’s hearts,” Ma said.

On Monday, Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute issued an internal notice banning Huawei devices from connecting to the Institute’s wireless networks, Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reported. The notice also said the ban would help protect the Institute’s confidential R&D projects.

Huawei has faced mounting headwinds in recent months as Western countries have moved to ban the company from working on their telecommunications networks, under national security concerns. During a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei denied spying accusations.
