Trump reportedly mulling order paving the way for Huawei ban

Huawei is not controlled by China, executive says

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

Chinese telecom giant Huawei is prepared to sign a "no-spy" agreement with countries including the United Kingdom, the company's chairman said on Tuesday, as the head of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said Britain must ensure the security of its mobile networks.

The Huawei logo stands on a Huawei office building in Dongguan in China's southern Guangdong province on 18 December 2018.

Speaking about espionage concerns, Liang said Huawei was willing to sign a "no-spy agreement" with governments, including the United Kingdom.

"There is no mandate in (China's national intelligence) law that we have to had over customer data or intelligence that we do not wish to hand over or we think should be sensitive".

The president also commented on the recent congressional subpoena of his son Donald Trump Jr., saying his son already offered about 20-hours of testimony in the Mueller probe.

The order would also further intensify the trade war between China and the US, which has been heating up in recent days.

The order, as it was conceived earlier this year, would not outright ban USA 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. Soon, the same might be true for US companies. "We urge the U.S.to stop citing security concerns as an excuse to unreasonably suppress Chinese companies and provide a fair and equitable and non-discriminatory environment for Chinese companies to operate in the U.S". It faces a growing backlash from Western countries on concerns over the security of its products used in next-generation 5G mobile networks. In December, Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng was arrested in Canada on suspicion of violating USA sanctions concerning Iran.

In January, U.S. prosecutors charged two Huawei units in Washington state saying they conspired to steal T-Mobile US Inc trade secrets, and also charged Huawei and its chief financial officer with bank and wire fraud on allegations that the company violated sanctions against Iran.

Ren Zhengfei, the company's founder and Meng's father, has denied espionage allegations and a link to China's government. And the order might eventually name specific companies or countries as Commerce carries out the process.

The oil tankers were visible in satellite images provided Tuesday to the AP by Colorado-based Maxar Technologies. There were no casualties but Saudi Arabia said two of its ships had suffered "significant damage ".

The U.S. government is already prohibited from using Huawei's telecommunications equipment. US officials said Huawei can build vulnerabilities, or backdoors, into equipment.

US President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to prohibit US telecom firms from using equipment made by companies that pose a "national security risk" with an executive order - a ban apparently aimed at China's Huawei.
