#AceNewsReport – May.16: The Chinese tech giant said restricting its business in the US would only hurt American consumers and companies: Several countries, led by the US, have raised concerns in recent months that Huawei products could be used by China for surveillance, allegations the company has vehemently denied: The US has been pressuring allies to shun Huawei in their next generation 5G mobile networks: In a separate development, the US commerce department added Huawei to its “entity list”, a move that bans the company from acquiring technology from US firms without government approval…….The moves are likely to worsen tensions between the US and China, which had already escalated this week with tariff hikes in a trade war…….Huawei has been at the epicentre of the US-China power struggle that has dominated global politics over the past year BBC News reports.
According to a White House statement, Mr Trump’s order aims to “protect America from foreign adversaries who are actively and increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in information and communications technology infrastructure and services”: It gives the secretary of commerce the power to “prohibit transactions posing an unacceptable risk to the national security”, the statement adds.The move was instantly welcomed by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who called it “a significant step toward securing America’s networks”….The US had already restricted federal agencies from using Huawei products and has encouraged allies to shun them, while Australia and New Zealand have both blocked the use of Huawei gear in 5G networks.
Huawei has said its work does not pose any threats and says it is independent from the Chinese government: “Restricting Huawei from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger,” the company said in a statement, responding to the decision…….”Instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior yet more expensive alternatives, leaving the US lagging behind in 5G deployment, and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”……..The company also said “unreasonable restrictions” on Huawei raised “other serious legal issues”.
During a meeting in London on Tuesday, Huawei chairman Liang Hua said it was “willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments” as concerns over the security of its products used in mobile networks continued to grow.
