FILE - In this Sept. 13, 2012, Charles Ding, Huawei Technologies Ltd's senior vice president for the U.S., testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, before the House Intelligence Committee as lawmakers probe whether Chinese tech giants' expansion in the U.S. market pose a threat to national security. In a report to be released Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, the House Intelligence Committee is warning that China's two leading technology firms pose a major security threat to the United States. The panel says regulators should block mergers and acquisitions in the U.S. by Huawei Technologies Ltd. and ZTE Corp. It also advises that U.S. government systems not include equipment from the two firms, and that private U.S. companies avoid business with them. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
