Huawei willing to sign "no-spy" pacts with governments

Huawei willing to sign

One person familiar with the situation said Trump planned to issue the order on Wednesday afternoon.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order this week barring USA companies from using telecommunications equipment made by firms posing a national security risk, paving the way for a ban on doing business with China's Huawei, three US officials familiar with the plan told Reuters. Huawei has denied the allegations.

The order would also further intensify the trade war between China and the US, which has been heating up in recent days. Reuters noted the measure would direct the US Department of Commerce to draw up a plan of action for enforcement.

China hawks in the Trump administration have been pushing the president for months to sign the executive order, as the USA security and intelligence establishment sounds louder alarms about the Chinese company.

"This is neither graceful nor fair", ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a news briefing in Beijing.

The move would be aimed at addressing perceived dangers posed by Chinese tech maker Huawei, which the U.S. has accused of spying on behalf of the Chinese government. "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".

Texas explorer completes deepest ocean dive in history
An American diver has found a plastic bag almost seven miles beneath the surface of the ocean, during a record-breaking dive. Vescovo says he's proud of these scientific finds - and also that the team's got a submersible that's up for the challenge.

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 Federal Communications Commission in April 2018 voted to advance a proposal to bar the use of funds from a $9 billion government fund to purchase equipment or services from companies that pose a security threat to US communications networks.

It follows concerns from some countries that China could use products made by the telecoms firm for surveillance.

The Rural Wireless Association, which represents carriers with fewer than 100,000 subscribers, estimated that 25 percent of its members had Huawei or ZTE equipment in their networks, it said in an FCC filing in December.

"There are no Chinese laws requiring companies to collect intelligence from a foreign government or implant back doors for the government".
