US again extends limited reprieve on tech sales to Huawei

AP – The Trump administration has extended for 90 more days a limited reprieve on United States (US) technology sales to Huawei.

The US government blacklisted the Chinese tech company in May, deeming it a national security risk. That means US firms aren’t allowed to sell technology to Huawei without government approval. The limited reprieve renewed on Monday applies to technology sales and transfers necessary for existing networks and services to continue to operate.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the extension will allow wireless companies to keep offering service in remote parts of the US Larger US wireless companies do not use equipment from Huawei, while smaller, rural carriers do.
