Huawei has released a white paper on innovation and intellectual property (IP), while at the same time warning against the issue "being politicised."

Speaking at a press conference at the company’s headquarters, Dr Song Liuping, Huawei’s chief legal officer, said that IP is the cornerstone of innovation and its politicisation threatens progress across the world.

The paper is titled “Respecting and Protecting Intellectual Property: The Foundation of Innovation.”

As of the end of 2018, Huawei has been granted 87,805 patents, of which 11,152 are US patents. Since 2015, Huawei has received more than US$1.4 billion in licensing revenue.

The white paper comes as Western nations increase scrutiny of Huawei amid concerns about spying and how close the company might be to the Chinese government, among other issues.
