According to these new rules, all the U.S companies will be able to apply for licenses to provide products and designs to Chinese telecom giant Huawei. But, U.S companies will not be able to sell chips designed and manufactured by U.S to Huawei. The Washington administration has identified Huawei as a threat to national security and are asking Americans not to use its products as these may be used by the Chinese government for spying.
Huawei itself has been taking necessary steps to stop being dependent on American made chips. But even without American made chips, Huawei still relies on foreign made chips and products.
In a statement, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said: “There has been a very highly technical loophole through which Huawei has been able, in effect, to use U.S. technology with foreign fab producers,”
These new rules ware an effort to seal up that loophole. The state department said that it has significant concerns about Huawei and its role in developing a Chinese government surveillance network abroad.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) said in a statement that these new rules were “long overdue.” Moreover, he also said that: “The United States needs to strangle Huawei,” he said. “Modern wars are fought with semiconductors, and we were letting Huawei use our American designs.”
On the other hand a Chinese newspaper the Global Times ran a message on Friday by warning that China will release a “unreliable entity list,” which will stop Chinese involvement with various U.S tech giants like Qualcomm, Cisco, Apple and will stop purchasing of of Boeing airplanes.
Since the start of this Pandemic, the President Trump has repeatedly blamed China for not doing enough and spreading the coronavirus globally. He also blames China for not informing the rest of the world about its effects.
