In the white paper [PDF] released on Thursday, Huawei said it "actively contributes to the legislative processes" regarding intellectual property in China, and helps align Chinese IP protection with international legislation.
"We make suggestions on the legislation and amendment of China's IP protection laws, including the Patent Law, Trademark Law, Copyright Law, Criminal Law and Anti-Monopoly Law, as well as their implementation rules and legal interpretations," the company said.
"In doing so, we aim to strengthen IP protection and help create a better environment for innovation and IP protection in China."
The white paper aligned with comments from Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei last week, who claimed the company could not have committed historic intellectual property theft.
"Even if we were small, we have very strong business ethics and integrity, otherwise we cannot come to where we are today," Ren said.
"The claims of Huawei theft of IPR, that's not possible."
Huawei said on Thursday that it respects, applies, and contributes to IP rules.
"Huawei respects the IP belonging to other parties, and is committed to protecting its own. We have signed patent cross-license agreements with many international ICT companies, and we contribute to creating an environment in which innovation and IP are well protected both within the industry and in every country where we operate," it said.
"We strive to resolve these disputes through amicable negotiations. We will also resort to judicial procedures or arbitration for dispute resolution if no agreement can be reached through negotiation."

The US indictment related to the case alleges Huawei offered bonuses to employees for stealing information, before needing to clarifying for its US employees that such behaviour would be illegal.
