US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday declaring a national economic emergency, giving his government extensive powers to approve or disapprove activities of foreign telecom firms like Huawei.
The Trump administration has eased some trade restrictions on Huawei, allowing the Chinese tech giant to continue doing business with US firms for another 90 days. Huawei's founder has warned conflict is "inevitable."
President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency over a perceived espionage threat. US firms could be barred from using foreign telecoms that could pose a threat, a move apparently aimed at China's Huawei.
Google is suspending some services for Huawei smartphones after the Chinese company was placed on a US trade blacklist. The move effectively bars Huawei from making phones and tablets for sale outside China.
Germany, France and the Netherlands have said they will not block Huawei from participating in the expansion of national 5G networks. The US fears that China could use Huawei equipment for spying.
