  • U.S. grants licenses, and clarity, to handful of Huawei suppliers

US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told Fox Business Network late on Tuesday that the department has "had 290-something requests for specific licences".

"We hope licence approvals continue to proceed in an appropriate and timely manner", the group added The United States has pending cases against Huawei for allegedly stealing American intellectual property and violating Iran sanctions.

"This decision does not change the fact that Huawei continues to be treated unfairly either", the Chinese firm said.

In May, the Commerce Department added Huawei, along with numerous overseas affiliates, to its restrictive Entity List, stating that the Chinese company operates contrary to US national security interests through its continued business dealings with Iran.

"The department will continue to rigorously monitor sensitive technology exports to ensure that our innovations are not harnessed by those who would threaten our national security", Ross said.

As U.S. officials have discovered, it is not easy to punish a company that you perceive to be a security threat when it happens to be the world's leading provider of networking equipment.

Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who is also the daughter of the company's founder and CEO, was arrested in Canada past year and is now fighting extradition to the United States on fraud and conspiracy charges tied to USA sanctions.

U.S. regulators are crafting rules on telecommunications firms that pose national security risks. But Trump has suggested a resolution to the trade conflict could involve reaching some common ground concerning Huawei.

Huawei called on the USA government to loosen the restrictions that have been placed on the company due to its ties with the Chinese state. "All we ask from foreign governments is equal treatment for Chinese companies including Huawei". Apparently, the Commerce Department has also received more than 200 applications for more specific licenses to work with Huawei, but the Commerce Department has not acted on those requests.

In a statement, the Chinese firm said Washington's decision to blacklist it "has caused more harm to the USA than to Huawei".

"The White House isn't ready to pull the plug on Huawei because that would do nearly as much harm to USA companies, but they're keeping it in reserve", said James Lewis, a technology expert with the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Following the near-collapse of US-China trade talks in May, Washington added Huawei to a list of companies effectively barred from purchasing US technology without prior approval from the US government.

While recipients of these licenses were not disclosed, the department's announcement signals Huawei will soon get some certainty - albeit not necessarily relief - on the status of its ties with partners ranging from semiconductor manufacturers to Google, which supplies the Android operating system for its smartphones.
