Today, Huawei issued a statement on the extension of the ‘temporary general license’ of the US Department of Commerce. The company expressed its opposition to the US Department of Commerce’s inclusion of another 46 Huawei entities in the list. The United States chose to make this decision at this point in time, proving that the decision is a politically driven outcome has nothing to do with US national security. Huawei called on the US government to stop the unfair treatment of Huawei and remove Huawei from the list of entities. Regardless of whether the temporary license is postponed or not, Huawei’s business has limited substantial impact and will continue to focus on making its own products and serving customers worldwide.
