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

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

The president is expected to sign an executive order (EO) invoking the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which gives the president the ability to regulate aspects of commerce that may pose a security risk to the U.S.

Clearly, the country is having a trust issue with the Chinese-based company's 5G infrastructure, and as a result of which a ban was imposed on Huawei.

Huawei is a private company that is not controlled by the Chinese government and would refuse to hand over information to Beijing although no such request has been made, the firm's Vice President of Western Europe said on Tuesday.

The main US 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 Green Party's Caroline Lucas called for a new referendum. "The only question is which side inherits the carcass". She spoke out on the issue as she launched her party's campaign for the ballot at Deanston Distillery near Stirling.


It could be delayed again, they added.

Even though Huawei supplies telecom equipment around the globe, it is headquartered in China and has often come under fire for being under control of the Chinese government. Diplomats pressing allies to bar Huawei from 5G networks have said the company is subject to Chinese law that demands cooperation with security services, raising the specter of espionage.

After years of spying allegations and pressure from the USA on its allies to avoid using Huawei's telecom equipment, the company has now has offered to sign a no-spy agreement with governments. Huawei's founder and president, Ren Zhengfei, denied the allegations in an interview with "CBS This Morning" in February. The U.S.is seeking to extradite her.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai recently said he was waiting for the Commerce Department to express views on how to "define the list of companies" that would be prohibited under the FCC proposal. USA officials say Huawei can build vulnerabilities, or backdoors, into equipment.

However, Al-Falih stressed that the production and exports of Saudi crude oil and products will continue "without interruption". However, two Saudi sources said the latest attack was the first time an Aramco facility was hit by drones.


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

"Huawei and 5G network is extremely important", Stoltenberg told a London business conference. Canadian authorities last December arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of the USA, which seeks her extradition over allegations of violating Iran sanctions.

While the big wireless companies have already cut ties with Huawei, small rural carriers continue to rely on Huawei and ZTE switches, and other equipment because they tend to be cheaper.
