Trump to Ban US Firms From Using Foreign Tech Deemed ‘Security Risk’

Huawei says willing to sign 'no-spy' agreements

Huawei willing to sign 'no-spy' agreements with governments

The Federal Communications Commission in April 2018 voted to advance a proposal to bar the use of funds from a $9 billion government fund to purchase equipment or services from companies that pose a security threat to US communications networks.

Many U.S. allies are under pressure to not use Huawei equipment because of spying allegations.

A decision will be made soon in the case for Huawei supplying telecom equipment in the UK.

USA officials have said that equipment made by Huawei Technologies Co., a Chinese telecommunications firm, could be used to spy on behalf of the Beijing government.

Washington has told allies not to use Huawei's technology to build new 5G networks because of worries it could be a vehicle for Chinese spying, an accusation the company has denied.

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.

Williamson has denied he leaked from the confidential talks.

Liang was backing up earlier comments made by Huawei's Western Europe VP Tim Watkins, who said: "Our founder, Mr Ren, has made it clear that he has never been asked to hand over any customer data or information and 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".

One person familiar with the situation said Trump planned to issue the order on Wednesday afternoon.

He said Huawei had long cooperated with Britain's National Cyber Security Centre's oversight of its technology, and it had improved its software engineering capabilities to make them the equal of competitors. USA officials said Huawei can build vulnerabilities, or backdoors, into equipment. "Where we are operating globally we are committed to be compliant with the locally applicable laws and regulations in that country". Furthermore, concerns about Chinese law requiring Huawei to cooperate with China's intelligence agencies were simply hype.

Liang also believes the decision should be based on economics and security while leaving politics out of the matter.

The British government is engaged in a heated debate over whether to allow Huawei roll out its next-generation mobile service.
