On Saturday, China's foreign ministry called on the stop its "unreasonable suppression" of Huawei and other Chinese companies.

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Friday that Washington wants to prevent Huawei from evading sanctions imposed earlier on its use of American technology to design and produce semiconductors overseas. "We must amend our rules exploited by Huawei and HiSilicon and prevent USA technologies from enabling malign activities contrary to USA national security and foreign policy interests", he said. "This deal bolsters US national security at a time when China is trying to dominate cutting-edge tech and control critical industries". The National Defense Authorization Act that became law in 2018 that bans the US government from using certain products made by Huawei and ZTE. Early Friday, editor-in-chief Hu Xijin of the Chinese newspaper Global Times warned of repercussions that could come for USA technology companies as a result of the decision to block Huawei product development.

The new restrictions on Huawei come amid heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing triggered by the regime's mishandling of the pandemic. These chips end up in Huawei and Honor phones as well as Huawei telecom equipment.

The Trump administration on May 15 announced plans to block Huawei from obtaining semiconductors from global chipmakers made with US technology, the latest move to clamp down on Chinese tech firms that pose national security risks.
