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

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

Huawei's chairman told reporters via an interpreter in London on Tuesday (May 14) the Chinese company would be willing to sign a "no-spy agreement" with the United Kingdom, The Guardian reports.

James Andrew Lewis, director of the Technology Policy Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Al Jazeera that "most of the espionage cases in the United States involve China, and Huawei is a tool of the Chinese government".

Alongside Trump's efforts, Congress previously banned government agencies from using equipment from Huawei, prompting the firm to sue the federal government.

So can it please be allowed to put 5G modems everywhere?

The order directs the director of U.S. National Intelligence to produce an assessment by late June on the risks to the United States and critical infrastructure "from information and communications technology or services designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a foreign adversary". Reuters reported in December that Trump was still considering issuing the order and other media reported in February that the order was imminent. Huawei, which has repeatedly denied such allegations, did not immediately comment on the executive order.

The president's order did not specifically name China or Huawei but will heighten tensions with Beijing amid an ongoing trade war.

However, Al-Falih stressed that the production and exports of Saudi crude oil and products will continue "without interruption". Two of the ships were Saudi oil tankers , which suffered "significant damage ", according to Saudi Arabia's Energy Minister.

David Wang, Huawei's executive director, said on Wednesday that new USA restrictions on market access will have little impact on the tech giant's business prospects.

China's Foreign Ministry accused the US of "deliberately discrediting" Chinese companies. In January 2018, US carriers shunned Huawei's newly-launched flagship, the Mate 10 Pro.

The UK, however, didn't impose a complete ban on Huawei but the country said that it has strict controls for how Huawei's equipment is deployed.

Prime Minister Theresa May sacked her defence minister, Gavin Williamson, this month over leaked claims that Huawei would have a role in the 5G network, putting Britain at odds with its biggest intelligence ally, the United States. Canadian authorities last December arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of the US, which seeks her extradition over allegations of violating Iran sanctions.

While the big U.S. wireless companies have already cut ties with Huawei, an estimated one quarter of small rural carriers continue to rely on both Huawei and ZTE switches because they tend to be cheaper.
