Trump administration hits China's Huawei with one-two punch

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

According to Reuters, the U.S. will likely soon tighten restrictions against Huawei as President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order barring United States companies from using telecoms equipment from Huawei or any other company that poses a threat to national security.

The issue has taken on new urgency as US wireless carriers rollout 5G networks.

Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican, dubbed Chinese tech components a "Trojan horse", while others said the line between the Chinese government and private industry remains fuzzy. Huawei did not immediately comment.

But Huawei - which is the world's largest maker of telecoms equipment - has vehemently denied the allegations.

"Given the threats presented by certain foreign companies' equipment and services, this is a significant step toward securing America's networks", he said.

A senior USA administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters in a hastily arranged call that that the order was "company and country agnostic" and said it would not be retroactive.

A number of countries - including the U.S. - have raised concerns that the company's products could be used by China for surveillance.

Under the order that will take effect in the coming days, Huawei will need a USA government license to buy American technology.

What Trump's trade war with China means for American consumers
In a previous round of tit-for-tat moves, the U.S. imposed 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports in September. President Trump has pledged to broaden tariffs even further to all Chinese imports - including big-ticket items.

There was glass everywhere at the Abrar mosque in the Muslim-majority town of Kiniyama that was attacked overnight. After clashes in Negombo, Cardinal Ranjith appealed to Christians and other communities to show restraint.

Mr Trump does not name any company specifically in the order.

The main USA wireless carriers have vowed not to use Huawei equipment in their 5G networks, but rural providers have relied on the company's low-priced equipment and warned of the potential impact of a ban.

The order's existence in draft form was first reported by The Washington Post last June.

Chinese telecom giant Huawei is prepared to sign a "no-spy" agreement with countries including the United Kingdom, the company's chairman said on Tuesday, as the head of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said Britain must ensure the security of its mobile networks.

U.S. security and intelligence agencies believe equipment made by the company could be used by the Chinese government for spying.

"Some experts and governments have misrepresented the technological problems of cybersecurity as political problems", said Wang, adding that conflating the two would "not help to build a truly security-networked world". That doesn't include the extra cost of next-generation equipment and upgrades from more expensive Western suppliers.

Huawei Technologies Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou is escorted by security as she leaves her home in Vancouver, Canada, on May 8, 2019. The sweeping indictments accuse the company of using extreme efforts to steal trade secrets from American businesses - including trying to take a piece of a robot from a T-Mobile lab.
