Huawei has sought to repair its image in the US through a full-page advert in the Wall Street Journal, which says: "Don't believe everything you hear", ONA reports citing BBC.

In an open letter, executive Catherine Chen invited US media to visit the firm to clear up "misunderstandings" created by the US government.

The US has been pressuring its allies to shun Huawei equipment on the grounds of national security.

Some governments have done just that, putting the firm on the defensive.

"I am writing to you in the hopes that we can come to understand each other better. In recent years, the US government has developed some misunderstandings about us," Ms Chen, director of the board at Huawei, said in the letter.

The advert, posted on Twitter by a Wall Street Journal reporter who covers cyber security, invited members of the US media to "visit our campuses and meet our employees".

"Don't believe everything you hear. Come and see us. We look forward to meeting you," it said.
