Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei has hit back against US sanctions against the vendor claiming they were politically motivated.
The US is attempting to prosecute Huawei over allegations of money laundering, bank fraud and stealing trade secrets.
The firm's CFO, and Zhengfei's daughter, Meng Wanzhou, has been arrested and detained in Canada, pending extradition to the US.
"There's no way the US can crush us," Ren Zhengfei told the BBC in an interview.
Commenting on the impact of US efforts to persuade allies to ban the Chinese supplier from 5G telecommunications systems, Zhengfei was unperturbed.
"The world cannot leave us because we are more advanced," he said.
"Even if they persuade more countries not to use us temporarily, we can always scale things down a bit."
He added: "If the lights go out in the West, the East will still shine. And if the North goes dark, there is still the South. America doesn't represent the world. America only represents a portion of the world."
However, despite his public confidence, Huawei is facing allegations of espionage in multiple countries.
This scepticism has extended to a governmental level in several countries as espionage allegations against Chinese firms have escalated.
Australia and New Zealand have both issued bans against Huawei from being involved in the rollout of each nation's 5G network.
In the UK, BT has already committed to removing Huawei equipment from its 3G and 4G networks, and will not use Huawei products in the "core" of its 5G rollout.
Although, there was some good news for Huawei, yesterday. A review into Huawei's involvement by the UK National Cyber Security Centre concluded that Huawei is a manageable risk.
However, there is a UK government review that is still ongoing, and not likely to issue its findings until April.
Some members of the British government have already expressed their reservations, such as UK defence secretary Gavin Williamson, who has said that he has "grave, very deep concerns about Huawei providing the 5G network in Britain".
Meanwhile, on the continent, Germany lawmakers are continuing to explore ways to ban Huawei products from its national infrastructure through raising security requirements.
If Germany does follow through, it would be a major blow to Huawei; its European HQ is in Dusseldorf.
