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.
China does everything it can to block access to information, particularly from the foreign press. So letting a Chinese firm build Germany's 5G network is naive, to say the least, says DW Director General Peter Limbourg.
Trump has lifted his trade ban on Huawei, but that won't keep the tech giant from trying to become as independent as possible. The move plays into the hands of Chinese tech and does the US no favors, says Frank Sieren.
A truce in the US-China trade dispute that could ease restrictions on Chinese telecom giant Huawei has caused an uproar in Washington over national security concerns.
US President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping have agreed to restart trade talks. The US also confirmed it would not slap additional tariffs on Chinese exports for now.
