Huawei can finally breathe a sigh of relief as U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that he will allow the Chinese telecommunications giant to buy products from American suppliers.
This was revealed after talks with China’s President Xi Jinping during the Group of 20 Summit in Osaka, Japan.
Trump confirms this by saying, “I’ve agreed to allow them to continue to sell that product so that American companies will continue.”
Donald Trump’s administration had previously announced a ban on 20th May which prevented American companies from dealing with Huawei. The ruling had affected multiple companies including Google, Intel, Qualcomm and Broadcom.
With this latest development, Huawei can continue to get hardware supplies and software support that it needs for its products. Prior to this, Huawei has been labelled as a security threat by the US due to its purported links to the Chinese government, a claim which the company has strongly denied.
The US government has provided no evidence and Huawei has also taken legal action, claiming that the ban is unconstitutional.
