The United States has been actively pushing other countries not to use Huawei's equipment in next-generation 5G networks that it calls "untrustworthy". Japan, Australia and New Zealand have also effectively banned the company from 5G infrastructure projects. It runs research and development bases around the world in an effort to wean itself off of high-end US components. But Germany and France have not followed suit.
That certainly provides some context to the issue, but it doesn't address the core point.
The decision taken on Wednesday risks escalating tensions with China as the world's two largest economies clash over whether Huawei - the world's largest provider of telecommunications equipment - poses a spying risk to Western infrastructure networks.

Don't forget about the extradition fight over Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada either.
In recent months, the USA government has taken a number of steps against the firm, including getting Canadian authorities in December to arrestHuawei CFO Meng Wanzhou over allegations of defrauding several banks by concealing payments from Iran in violation of US sanctions. But U.S. officials have presented no evidence of any Huawei equipment serving as intentional conduits for espionage by Beijing. One of the Canadian citizens to face formal charges is Michael Kovrig, a former diplomat who has been charged with "gathering state secrets and intelligence for abroad".
Foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang, asked if China had invited US officials for more talks, said China always advocated resolving disputes through dialogue.
