Huawei is not controlled by China, executive says

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

President Trump will bar USA wireless carriers from using telecom equipment and products from companies that pose a national security risk, according to a report from Reuters.

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 status of Huawei and ZTE has taken on new urgency as USA wireless carriers rollout 5G networks.

Analysts believe the order is mainly targeting Chinese telecom giant Huawei. Huawei's founder and president, Ren Zhengfei, denied the allegations in an interview with "CBS This Morning" in February.

Huawei has also said it is independent from the Chinese government, but some countries have blocked it from their 5G networks on national security grounds.

Huawei: Indian government "open and welcoming" on 5G Despite reports to the contrary, Huawei says it is continuing to work on 5G tests with Indian carriers while the Indian government remains open and welcoming towards its networking solutions.

Tim Watkins, VP for Western Europe told assembled reporters that the company founder, Ren Zhengfei has said that not only has Huawei never offered backdoors but "he has made it clear that if asked he would refuse and if it was attempted to be enforced he would shut the company down.".

During a daily briefing in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, argued the U.S.is engaging in a smear campaign against Chinese companies.

The order lands amid intensifying concern among US intelligence about the vulnerability of networks that rely on Huawei components.

Donald Trump ratcheted up his battle with China for dominance of 5G technology networks, moving to curb Huawei Technologies Co.'s access to the USA market and American suppliers.

"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".

Alongside Trump's efforts, Congress previously banned government agencies from using equipment from Huawei, prompting the firm to sue the federal government.

Chairman Liang Hua promised Huawei won't do that again and said: "We are willing to sign a no-spy agreement with the United Kingdom government".

The Wall Street Journal first reported in May 2018 that the executive order was under review.

The report, which cites three unnamed USA officials familiar with the matter, says the order has been under consideration for more than a year, but has been delayed several times - and it may get delayed again.

The association has about 60 members, none with more than 100,000 customers, although many are crucial partners for the nation's four major operators, providing coverage in remote locations through roaming agreements.

In December, Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng was arrested in Canada on suspicion of violating US sanctions concerning Iran.

The executive charged is Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who is also the daughter of the company's founder.
