Trump executive order enables ban on Huawei telecom gear

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to bar USA companies from using telecommunications firms deemed a national security risk, a move targeted at both present and future liabilities but one that is poised to affect China's Huawei Tech.

Under the order, which relies on emergency powers, the Commerce Department secretary can block transactions involving technology that poses a risk of sabotage or "catastrophic" effects on American interests.

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

David Wang, Huawei's executive director, said on Wednesday that new United States restrictions on market access will have little impact on the tech giant's business prospects. Huawei did not immediately comment.

The order doesn't single out specific firms but appeared to target those like Huawei - a Chinese company that members of both parties have long eyed with suspicion. "The Americans will assume that everything we share with Germany will end up with the Chinese", the official told TheWSJ, referring to what would happen if Germany continues dealing with Huawei.

Leonard's squat-prompting buzzer beater sends Raptors to conference finals
Lowry, who had an injured thumb taped in the first half, had 10 points, and Gasol added seven points and 11 rebounds. Leonard's teammates closed in while Embiid walked away with an off-season ahead of thinking about the shot.

"We urge the United States to stop using the excuse of security issues to unreasonably suppress Chinese companies, and provide a fair, just, non-discriminatory environment for Chinese companies carrying out normal investments and operations in the United States".

"We are willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments, including the United Kingdom government, to commit ourselves to making our equipment meet the no-spy, no-backdoors standard", Liang Hua said at a business conference in London via an interpreter.

And the company's chairman, Liang Hua, said on Tuesday that his company is even willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments that commit the firm to "making our equipment meet the no-spy, no-backdoors standard".

Though no countries are specifically named in the emergency declaration, both the Trump administration and Congress have repeatedly singled out China's telecom giants ZTE and Huawei as potential threats to the U.S., in particular their development of 5G technology. And in August 2018, president Trump signed an executive order banning USA government agencies from purchasing or using telecommunications equipment from certain Chinese technology companies, including ZTE and Huawei. It could be delayed again, they said.

The Wall Street Journal first reported in May 2018 that the executive order was under review. Meng, who maintains her innocence, is fighting extradition.
