Today, the president of the United States, Donald Trump has confirmed this Saturday that the North American companies will be able to re-supply material to the Huawei technology. This seems to restart trade negotiations with China during the G20 summit in Osaka (Japan).
Trump thus decides to reverse a decision by prohibiting these companies from entering into commercial relations with Huawei. According to the security council, the Chinese company could pose a threat to national security.
“We will send and sell to Huawei a tremendous amount of products that they use in the things they do, and I said ‘perfect.’ We will continue to sell them these products,” Trump said.
Trump signed an executive order that prohibits US telecommunications companies from using devices manufactured by companies that may pose “a risk to national security.” This determination opened the door to a possible ban with the Asian giant Huawei.
The president, however, has not spoken about Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou, arrested in Canada at the request of the US authorities.
The initial decree on Huawei invokes the Law of Economic Emergency Powers International. This gives the president the authority to regulate trade in response to a national emergency that threatens the United States.
The measure orders the Department of Commerce to submit an application plan within 150 days. In a statement released by the White House, the US president justified his decision in the attacks received by “foreign adversaries” who try to “exploit weaknesses in the information and communication systems” of his country.
Trump explained that this threat exists because of the personal use of devices or services offered by those companies that try to carry out an espionage focused on the economy and the industry of the United States.
