Huawei Denounces ‘Unfair Treatment’ despite License Extension in US

BEIJING – Chinese technology company Huawei has complained of “unfair treatment” by the United States despite a 45-day extension of its temporary license to do business with American companies.

“This decision does not change the fact that Huawei continues to receive unfair treatment,” the firm said in a statement on Friday.

It said the extension of its permission to operate in the US “will not, under any circumstances, have a substantial impact on Huawei’s business.”

The US Department of Commerce announced on Thursday the extension of a temporary license reducing restrictions on business deals with the Chinese company for 45 days.

It said the licence was “a measure to prevent interruption of existing network communication systems in rural US regions and permit global network security measures.”

It was also intended to give US companies time to exchange their equipment for others not manufactured by Huawei or its subsidiaries.

US authorities have said they will review the period again if necessary with the possibility of another extension.

Huawei has been at the centre of a trade war between China and the US, which has temporarily calmed down with the signing of a first partial agreement.

Washington included the firm on a blacklist in May last year and accused it of being a danger to national security because of alleged links with the Chinese government.

The company said its inclusion in the list has been more damaging to the US than to Huawei and asked Washington to put an end to the “unfair treatment.”

The DoC said in a statement: “Huawei was added to the entity list after the US government concluded the company poses a significant risk of involvement in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States, including, by engaging, among other things, in alleged violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, conspiracy to violate IEEPA by providing prohibited financial services to Iran, and obstruction of justice in connection with the investigation of those alleged violations of US sanctions, among other illicit activities, including charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering activities.”

US authorities on Thursday charged Huawei and two of its subsidiaries with federal racketeering and conspiracy to steal trade secrets from American companies.

Huawei said in a statement to Efe that the accusations were an attempt by the US to “increase the pressure” and that the charges lack foundation.
