Huawei Technologies Co. pleaded not guilty Wednesday to racketeering charges filed last month by U.S. prosecutors who accused the Chinese telecommunications equipment giant of a 20-year pattern of corporate espionage.

The company had called the charges “unfounded and unfair” prior to entering its plea Wednesday in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.
