The U.S. Department of Commerce has confirmed that it will lift previous restrictions on U.S. companies’ cooperation with Chinese Huawei in the field of 5G communication system.
The United States confirms that it will “revise its bans on U.S. companies doing business with Chinese Huawei to allow them to work together to set standards for next-generation 5G networks”, the ministry tweeted.
Attached to the message is a statement by U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, which emphasizes that “the U.S. will not give up leadership in global innovation.
“The Department must protect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests by encouraging U.S. industry to be fully engaged in the process of turning U.S. technology into world standards”, – Ross said in a statement.
According to U.S. officials, Huawei works in the interests of the Chinese government. The use of the Chinese company’s technology by other countries opens the way for Beijing to state secrets and thus threatens national security.
In this regard, the U.S. has blacklisted Huawei and banned American companies from selling it components for the production of electronic equipment. However, the entry into force of this ban has been postponed several times.Radicals have organized a mass protest in Kiev
