Huawei Faces Further Heat From US Administration

US government asks allies to drop Huawei equipment, WSJ says

"Huawei is surprised by the behaviors of the United States government detailed in the article", it said.

In particular, USA officials have told their colleagues in other countries they should regard Huawei equipment as a risk, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources.

The U.S. government is even weighing financial support for countries who shun Chinese equipment and develop their own.

Huawei has always been labeled a security risk by US lawmakers because of alleged links to the Chinese government, in part because it was founded by former military engineer Ren Zhengfei.

After a short period of silence, a new set of breaking reports came to light which reveals that United States is still angry with Chinese company Huawei. The US maintains many military bases overseas, in Japan and Germany for example, in countries where Huawei equipment is popular.

Copa Libertadores final postponed after Boca bus attack
The head of Conmebol's medical team was reported to be assessing if the match could go ahead after the controversy. The match was postponed until 5:00pm Sunday local time (7:00am Monday AEDT).

This comes amid Washington's suspicions that the world's largest telecom equipment maker could be using its equipment for cyber espionage as part of cooperation with Chinese intelligence agencies.

A spokesperson for the Department of Commerce said in an emailed statement the agency "will remain vigilant against any threat to US national security and continues to diligently implement the settlement agreement with ZTE". ZTE's value has almost halved this year, battered by a three month U.S. government ban on American firms selling parts to the firm, and a subsequent $1.4 billion settlement. Chinese telecom stocks fell rapidly in response to the report.

Earlier in August this year, Australia has banned two Chinese firms, Huawei and ZTE from providing 5G technology for the country on the ground of security concerns.

The warnings come as many countries prepare to roll out 5G, which Huawei provides tech for.

The US's push, which was reportedly seeded before the current administration took over, reflects the fears of many analysts that Chinese firms operating in bad faith might embed themselves just as the next-gen wireless 5G network is rolled out worldwide.
