Wilbur Ross, the Commerce Secretary of the United States, confirmed that the officials decided to delay the trade ban on Huawei for another 90 days. Trump blacklisted the Chinese tech giant in May due to the national security concerns. But after a few days, the U.S. postponed the ban for ninety days intending to ease the transition, and it was due to expire on 19th August. On the other side, Ross also stated that administration decided to add 46 more Huawei affiliates to the U.S. Entity List, the list of companies which the U.S. firms will not trade.
The amnesty from the U.S. intended to permit firms like Google to trade with tech giant Huawei to adjust with the trade limitations. He added, this temporary permit also help the customers of the United States. Ross said that they are giving additional time to their U.S. Huawei customers to wean themselves off.
In reaction, Huawei said that they opposed the decision of the United States to add 46 more affiliates to the U.S. Blacklist and called it a politically motivated move. In another statement, Huawei said that the latest unjust decision doesn’t put the substantial impact on the business of Huawei. Furthermore, Donald Trump, the President of the United States, said that they do not want to do business with Huawei anymore but to prevent any disruption, they extended the ban deadline.
