Trump Poised to Sign Order Restricting Foreign Telecom Companies

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

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 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.

According to Reuters, the order, which has been under consideration for a year, would not specifically name Huawei or China, but would instead invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act.

The move would come at a time when US-China tensions are already on the rise.

The statement comes after news leaked this month that Huawei equipment would be used in 5G networks in the United Kingdom, creating tension between it and the U.S. The leaks resulted in Theresa May firing her defense minister Gavin Williamson, despite Williamson denying leaking anything.

China hawks in the Trump administration have been pushing the president for months to sign the executive order, as the U.S. security and intelligence establishment sounds louder alarms about the Chinese company. Huawei, which has repeatedly denied the allegations, did not immediately comment.

No US government agency can use Huawei's products.

In January, U.S. prosecutors charged two Huawei units in Washington state saying they conspired to steal T-Mobile US Inc trade secrets, and also charged Huawei and its chief financial officer with bank and wire fraud on allegations that the company violated sanctions against Iran.

Huawei is the world's largest maker of telecoms equipment.

Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai said last week he is waiting for the Commerce Department to express views on how to "define the list of companies" that would be prohibited under the FCC proposal.

However, the German government says it has not now received any offers for a no-spy contract to help win a bid there to build its 5G network.
