BEIJING — Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei issued a public invitation Friday to US authorities to investigate the company to dispel what it says are mistaken fears that it is a threat to American national security.

Huawei Technologies Ltd. made the unusual appeal in a letter on its website following its announcement last week it would unwind its purchase of American computer company 3Leaf Systems after it failed to win approval from a US security panel.

"We sincerely hope that the United States government will carry out a formal investigation on any concerns it may have about Huawei," said the letter, signed by Huawei deputy chairman Ken Hu.

The company rejected what it said were untrue allegations that it has ties to China's military, receives improper Chinese government financial support or is a threat to American national security.
