DUBAI (Reuters) - The United States has raised its concerns with Gulf allies over a possible security risk in using Huawei's technology for their 5G mobile infrastructure, U.S. officials said on Thursday.
Sen. Marco Rubio is confident that Congress will codify in law Trump administration restrictions imposed on China’s telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies, a company the Florida Republican says poses a national security threat to the United States.
A bipartisan group of senators on Tuesday introduced legislation to codify in law an export control ban on the use of telecommunications products made by China's Huawei Technologies Ltd, the government-linked telecommunications giant.
An investigation of the telecommunications equipment produced by China's Huawei Technologies Ltd. has uncovered numerous cases of secret access points that could allow Chinese intelligence to conduct cyberoperations through the equipment.
President Donald Trump indirectly targeted China's Huawei Technologies with a presidential order signed last week blocking telecommunications companies linked to foreign adversaries from selling equipment to U.S. firms.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration hit Chinese telecoms giant Huawei with severe sanctions on Wednesday, adding another incendiary element to the U.S.-China trade dispute just as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he would visit China soon for more talks.
