Donald Trump, who thinks that Chinese telecommunications companies are harming the national security of the USA, brought bans to companies such as Huawei and ZTE last year. According to the new statement, these bans were extended for another year.
Huawei, which has been experiencing great problems in the USA for a long time, seems to continue to experience these problems for at least the next 1 year. U.S. President Donald Trump banned US companies from using telecommunications equipment manufactured by companies that could pose a national security risk by 2021.
According to the report made by Reuters, the law that came into force at first in May 2019 was realized with the announcement of “national emergency” to give the president direct permission when it first came out. Citing communication sabotage, general national security risks, infrastructure risk, and digital economy risks, Trump also prevents many companies, especially Chinese companies such as Huawei and ZTE, from selling new products to the USA.
Huawei breaks this ban by renewing its old products
Huawei, one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, is trying to enter the market by publishing new versions of its old phones in order to generate income from a big market such as the USA. Considering that no additional explanation has been made with the new extension decision, we can foresee that the items that came into force, as in the previous year, are valid for the next year. Of course, a long period of 1 year will cause Huawei to have more difficulties in the US market.
What did Huawei say?
In the first period, when Trump enacted the ban, Huawei told Android Authority, “Restricting Huawei from doing business with the U.S. will not make the U.S. safer or stronger; this decision will only serve to limit the U.S. with lower features, but with more expensive alternatives, and will fall behind the U.S. 5G technology. ” He made a statement.
