China responds over possible Huawei, ZTE ban for United States firms

Trump may declare national emergency barring usage of Huawei telecoms

Trump may declare national emergency barring usage of Huawei telecoms

The executive order, which has been under consideration for more than eight months, could be issued as early as January and would direct the Commerce Department to block United States companies from buying equipment from foreign telecommunications makers that pose significant national security risks, sources from the telecoms industry and the administration said.

Huawei and ZTE have denied the allegations. The sources said the text for the order has not been finalized.

The executive order has been under consideration for almost eight months, and will very likely target Chinese telecom companies like Huawei, ZTE and possibly others, according to a Reuters report.

Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE are very close to having its telecom equipment banned in the United States in the coming weeks.

Huawei and ZTE declined to comment.

The executive order has been developing for over eight months and may be issued in January, according to Reuters, citing unnamed sources in the administration and telecom industry.

Earlier in August, President Trump had signed an order banning Huawei and ZTE tech from use by the U.S. government and government contractors.

Asked about the case and whether it would add to tensions between China and Canada, Ms Hua said she did not have a grasp of the situation, but added: "The Chinese side has repeatedly made clear China's solemn and just stand". "Some countries, without any evidence, are abusing the national security and politicizing and putting up all sorts of barriers on the normal scientific and technological exchanges - this is to shut themselves off from the openness, progress and fairness".

One group of carriers that could be hit especially hard would be rural carriers that deploy cheaper equipment.

Separately, the FCC in April granted initial approval to a regulation that bars giving federal funding to help pay for telecommunication infrastructure to companies that purchase equipment from firms deemed as a threat to USA national security, which analysts have said is aimed at Huawei and ZTE. In August, the Australian federal government chose to bar Huawei and ZTE from providing 5G technology for the country's wireless networks, citing national security.
