Ren Zhengfei, founder and chief executive officer of Huawei Technologies Co., speaks during an interview at the company’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019.

Embattled technoloogy giant Huawei took out a full-page print advertisement in Thursday’s edition of The Wall Street Journal, telling readers “Don’t believe everything you hear. Come and see us.”

The advertisement, presented as an “open letter” by Catherine Chen, a senior vice president and director of Huawei’s board, asks U.S. journalists to visit the company’s campuses, and says the U.S. government — which has accused the company of espionage, fraud and theft in the past year — “has developed some misunderstandings about us.”

Huawei has been facing increasing scrutiny over what U.S. officials have characterized as a long-term effort to use its technology products for espionage. The U.S. has openly contemplated bans of the company’s 5G and energy products, and other countries aligned with the U.S. have already banned its equipment or are considering boycotts.
