Huawei chairman says ready to sign 'no-spy' deal with UK

Huawei chairman says ready to sign 'no-spy' deal with UK

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

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. It could be delayed again, they said.

The order, as it was conceived earlier this year, would not outright ban US sales by the companies, but would give greater authority to the Commerce Department to review products and purchases by firms connected to adversarial countries, including China, one of the people said.

The move would come as relations between the United States and China continue to break down, with the past week having seen both sides ratchet up tariffs.

Washington believes equipment made by Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the world's third largest smartphone maker, could be used by the Chinese state to spy.

And while the order reportedly won't name any specific countries and companies, it's tailored towards Huawei, which the US government deems to be a spy threat (and which Huawei has vehemently denied).

The administration official said the Commerce Department was expected to take as long as six months to fashion an approach to the order, so there might not be an immediate effect.

The U.S. has been trying without success to persuade other governments to exclude to exclude equipment made by Huawei from super-fast 5G mobile networks that will connect billions of devices. This would pave the way for an effective ban for companies on doing business with Huawei, and potentially other Chinese companies such as ZTE. In January 2018, US carriers shunned Huawei's newly-launched flagship, the Mate 10 Pro.

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.

At a hearing Tuesday, U.S. senators raised the alarm about allies using Chinese equipment in 5G networks.
