Huawei offers to sign a no-spy agreement with governments

Donald Trump to issue order effectively blocking Huawei from US

The Commerce Department's move to put Huawei on its "Entity List" means US companies will need a special license to sell products to the Chinese company.

"We are willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments, including the United Kingdom government, to commit ourselves to making our equipment". "No spying, no backdoors", said Liang. An administration official said Tuesday that the order on telecommunications technology is unrelated to the recent escalation of the trade conflict.

Donald Trump ratcheted up his battle with China for dominance of 5G technology networks, moving to curb Huawei Technologies Co.'s access to the US market and American suppliers.

The order, which would not name specific countries or companies, has been under consideration for more than a year, but has been repeatedly delayed, the sources said, asking not to be named because the preparations remain confidential.

US President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order this week barring US companies from using telecommunications equipment made by firms that pose a national security risk, paving the way for a ban on doing business with China's Huawei Technologies Co (華為), three officials familiar with the plan said.

Ms May fired defence minister Gavin Williamson - one of the cabinet's big critics of China - earlier this month over a leak alleging that her government will allow Huawei to play a limited 5G role. "Even if we were required by Chinese law, we would firmly reject that.". Both Huawei and ZTE Corp. have also been targeted by the USA for alleged schemes to dodge American sanctions on Iran. In December, Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng was arrested in Canada on suspicion of violating USA sanctions concerning Iran.

Hodeidah governor calls Houthi withdrawal from Yemen ports 'theatrical act'
Yemen's conflict has killed tens of thousands of people, many of them civilians, relief agencies say. The port of Hodeida is one of Yemen's most important lifelines.

Meng remains under house arrest in Vancouver while the legal proceedings unfold.

Members of Congress said the order was squarely aimed at Chinese companies like Huawei that US intelligence officials say could be used by the Chinese state to spy.

The statement comes after news leaked this month that Huawei equipment would be used in 5G networks in the United Kingdom, creating tension between it and the U.S. The leaks resulted in Theresa May firing her defense minister Gavin Williamson, despite Williamson denying leaking anything.

Analysts believe the order is mainly targeting Chinese telecom giant Huawei.

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.
