Trump May Sign Executive Order Banning Huawei Telecom Equipment

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

Huawei is not controlled by China, executive says

The U.S. has been trying without success to persuade other governments to exclude equipment made by Huawei from super-fast 5G mobile networks that will connect billions of devices.

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 USA, in particular their development of 5G technology.

In February, Trump suggested that he would not sign the executive order by tweeting that he wanted the U.S. to win the 5G ultra-high speed mobile telecommunications race by competition and "not by blocking out now more advanced technologies", in a reference that was widely interpreted as referring to Huawei.

Some countries, including Australia, have taken steps to block Huawei from the 5G networks, but the United Kingdom and others reportedly plan to still allow the firm to participate.

Williamson has denied he leaked from the confidential talks. "No-spy, no-backdoors", said Huawei's rotating boss, Liang Hua on Tuesday.

"The cyber security issue is not exclusive to just one single supplier or one single company, it is a common challenge facing the entire industry and the entire world", he said.

"Having said that, of course, what matters for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is that these decisions are made in a way that makes sure that they have secure networks", Stoltenberg said.

Liang said Huawei did not act on behalf of China's government in any worldwide market.

The U.K. will decide soon about Huawei's involvement in its telco infrastructure and these promises from the company are likely an attempt to assure the government there is nothing to fear. "Where we are operating globally we are committed to be compliant with the locally applicable laws and regulations in that country". "We urge the stop citing security concerns as an excuse to unreasonably suppress Chinese companies and provide a fair and equitable and non-discriminatory environment for Chinese companies to operate in the U.S". British minister Jeremy Wright, who will announce the findings of the telco supply-chain review, had said the benefits of cheap kit would not trump security concerns.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board in Washington DC are expected to arrive in Ketchikan later on Tuesday. Six people are unaccounted for after two floatplanes went down in Southeast Alaska, the Coast Guard said Monday evening.

Liang also believes the decision should be based on economics and security while leaving politics out of the matter. Huawei is pushing to take a global leadership position, but many American officials suspect the company's products could be used by Beijing to spy on Western governments and companies.
